Church Hill Alnmouth

Inspecting a WW2 pill box on top of Church Hill, Alnmouth. This one is almost completely buried. Although we did not measure this structure, size and design look exactly the same as the Druridge Bay pill box pictured here.    
    Also note in this image the traces of the old bed of the river Aln (flat, dark area) winding its way from around the south of Church hill and exiting to the left. This is the old path of the river that changed its course during a great storm on Christmas day 1806, when it broke through the narrow strip of land connecting Church Hill to Alnmouth village.
