Welcome to this blog which is intended to accompany a website on how Suffolk was defended during the Second War. The blog will describe my trips out and about looking for the remains of the Second War defences while the Website will concentrate on putting these into context.

Sizewell WW2 Defence Remains

A quick visit after work yesterday to record some more ant-tank cubes. These have actually been visible for over six months now, I first noticed them sometime last year after a storm but have only just now got round to recording them. Another small fragment of the once formidable  WW2 defences in this area.

Image 2: The 'new' anti-tank cubes exposed by storms last year.
Image 3: 'Suffolk Square' pillbox, Sizewell Cliffs.
Image 4: Turnbull mount  - note the rough fit - the pre cast embrasure has been chiseled away to incorporate the mount.
Image 5: What appears to be the remains of a short section of fire trench on the cliff top.
