Defence Post 26. Pillbox of non-standard, thin-walled, brick faced construction. Although it has six sides it is roughly rectangular in plan because the front and rear elevations have long sides and feature two loop-holes each. The angle of the two end walls of both sdies is therefore shallow, and its design does not conform to the standard types, but is similar to defence post "B". It faces north-east and is therefore built for outer defence. Other details: Map 9; Plate 28.
