After seing the pillboxes in saddleworth thought i would go and have alook see if it was were i remeberd from my childhood first of we start with the two room pill box built at the side of the A635 isle of skye road to protect the good folk of saddleworth after the inevitable collapse by those sheep botherers of yarkshire lol

of brick and concrete construction built into the side of the hill and supperbly sited to stop anything coming down the A635 from holmfirth enough of the blurb on with the pics
