Cayton Bay PillboxYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
One of the many ruined pillboxes scattered along the coast at Cayton Bay, near Scarborough. The Yorkshire coast, though known for dramatic cliffs, also has many beautiful wide beaches. In 1940, with Britain under the very real threat of invasion, defensive measures were put in place along these beaches. Tank traps, barbed wire emplacements and pillboxes are common finds along the north east coast. At Cayton, the cliffs have retreated under 80 years of erosion, and the pillboxes have tumbled down onto the sand. This example is still in one piece, but has rolled upside down. This allows a good view of the floorplan and machine gun embrasures.
I also like this example for it’s unusual graffiti, helps it to stand out a bit. 126 images taken in May 2020 and processed in Metashape, lockdown isn’t so bad.
