Parking in Mount Bures the first pillbox I came across was a standard CRE 1094 - a bullet proof infantry pillbox with an open central well for a AA mount. It guards a bridge under the railway line.

Further along the path a remarkable survival exists (if a little overgrown!!) in the form of a pillbox complete with bent rail block and concrete tank blocks at a crossing point over the railway line. The bent rails block the crossing on the pillbox side while on the other side of the line, eight concrete blocks in two rows block the crossing. Either side of the block, the railway line is either in a cutting or on a raised embankment.

Above: Top image- the bent rail block - the pillbox can be seen hidden in the scrub to the right of the block.
Second image shows the rear of the pillbox - the bent rail block can be seen in the background.
Third image - the overgrown front of the pillbox.
Forth image - the pillbox would have had a wide field of fire

Above: The concrete tank blocks. Note the blocks are covering a gap as to the left of the image it can be seen the railway runs through a cutting.
Moving onto nearby Bures, a Type 22 can be seen covering the bridge over the Stour, on the Essex side.
Next post will feature some of the pillboxes from Bures towards Sudbury.
