Here's one on the eastern approaches to Elgin.


The walls are constructed completely of local sandstone which is rather soft and probably wouldn't have stopped a butter knife never mind an 88mm shell from a german panzer

I'm a proper n00b to this thread but I think it's quite interesting, I saw these on the beach in Hartlepool but I don't think they are anything special, Any takers?

Those look like anti-tank / landing craft cubes. I know some people at Formby who have them in their gardens facing on to the beach. Hera are some on the causeway to Holy Island:
