Full Description

The site of a pillbox was noted by ARCH's Evanton Wartime Remains project in 2013. A Type 24 pillbox was clearly visible on the 1946 aerial photos, beside the road leading from the original airfield buildings to the hangars near the Deephaven entrance, to the west of the buildings. Across the road at NH 62497 67006 another fortified structure appeared on the aerial photo, perhaps a pillbox or perhaps just turf or sandbagged walls. <1>
