The Second World War pillbox described in authority 1 is situated on a north west facing slope near the north western corner of Lodge Hill Royal Naval Armaments Depot (Monument 1077634). It is one element within the supporting defences of a Stop Line (Monument 1542577) constructed in 1940 across the south western third of the Hoo Peninsula, from the north bank of the Medway to the south bank of the Thames at Higham Creek. This pillbox was constructed at the point where the Stop Line's anti tank ditch met the edge of Berry Court Wood, which was incorporated as a defence obstruction. The pillbox and the rest of the Stop Line defences have been mapped from aerial photographs as part of the English Heritage: Hoo Peninsula Landscape Project. (2-3)
