TQ 7702 7432. The pillbox described in authority 1 is visible on aerial photographs and has been mapped, and its position recorded more precisely, as part of the English Heritage: Hoo Peninsula Landscape Project. It is located at the north east corner of Lodge Hill Royal Naval Armaments Depot (Monument 1077634), and probably also formed part of the defences of the Hoo Stop Line (Monument 1532577), a system of anti tank ditches, pillboxes and gun emplacements constructed in 1940 across the south western third of the Hoo Peninsula, from the Medway to the Thames. This pillbox appears on aerial photographs between 1944 and 2007, and is probably still extant. Other gun emplacements and pillboxes associated with the Stop Line appear in the vicinity (Monuments 1426121, 1426114, 1426109, 1426099). (2-4)
