Full Description

A pillbox was noted by ARCH's Evanton Wartime Remains project in 2013. It was a round Norcon pillbox, 6 feet in diameter, cracked and left upside down. It had been moved to this location, and perhaps reused for estate purposes. The concrete was very thin. The Norcon pillbox, was described by one commentator as possibly the most dangerous, cheap and nasty of all the pillbox designs (Ruddy 2003). Most models had no roof. Very few survive. <1> <2>
