Eyes In The Forest
pillbox in Randalstown Forest

Came across this second world war pillbox on a walk at Randalstown Forest. Something quite sinister and out of place with the forest having grown around it.

Spotting a pillbox in the landscape today we often see red-brick clad bunkers sticking discretely above the landscape. This isn’t how they would have looked when concealed into the landscape. many techniques were used to hide the pillbox from view; both from the air and aerial reconnaissance and from passing patrols.
