Looking north across the partially obscured roof of a Second World War Pillbox located above the moats facing the east end of the tenaillle near the North Entrance of Dover's Napoleonic Western Heights defenses.

The entrance to the pillbox is facing the camera and lies underneath the green bush on the left (above the purplely-flower-thingies).

This is a typical 'Dover Quad' style pillbox being square with angled corners and wide splaying embrasures in the east, north and west walls.

The North Entrance is to the left of the photo; the Drop Redoubt is situated to the right.

National Monuments Record Number (NMR Number): TR 34 SW 494 (Monument Number 1316179).

There is also a video of the North Entrance (featuring internal and external views of this pillbox) which has been split into two to meet YouTube requirements:
