Not very near there to my knowledge, a bit out of the way but probably protecting Derby, the railway and RR from south attacks. This http://www.panoramio.com/photo/15535524 near Goodsmoor Bridge in Sinfin with two more nearby in the grounds of the Distribution Centre at Sinfin, once site of an ordinance depot. This http://www.panoramio.com/photo/5499531 near the airfield at Burnaston and this 52° 51' 56.35" N 1° 31' 40.17" W near Stenson, probably part of the Willington power station protection. Weirdly enough I was talking to a great old chap this afternoon who was a driver with an artillery reg in WW2 and now lives a few yards from the Goodsmoor Bridge box. Rprivfirstname.lastname@example.org . Tell me more!
52°57'12.58"N 1°32'57.81"W always surprised me. There was an officers training camp nearby allegedly. Follow the path 300 yds nnw and there's another by the road side but not noticeable unless walking. I live near Tollerton. Tripping over them, (and secret bunkers), near there!!
sad to say i did not get to go that way when i was up that way and when i did have time it was very late and chucking it down with rain LOL
i did see and video 1 pillbox when i went to Alton Towers and iv posted that on youtube entitled Pillbox vid 64 and i saw 3 anti tank blocks on the north side of the River Trent at Willington but did not have time to video them so if you are going that way you might find them interesting enough to photograph and add to your fabulous portfolio.
why did i call you Terry when your name is Russ im sorry i dont know what i was thinking of so sorry again
well iv worked out why i called you Terry it was because i was reading some old comments that i had left on http://sub-ex.blogspot.com/2007/04/shornemead-fort-gravesend.html so at least iv not gone totally mad
No problem Gertrude. Let me know where the anti tank blocks are and I will go and enjoy a soggy walk. Went past the big bunker at Sinfin today.
LOL ok from St Michael's church at Willington head south east towards the bridge that crosses the river Trent but befor you get to the bridge on your right hand side there is a small triangle of grass where a side road goes and at that junction there are 3 white anti tank blocks.
there might be more nearby or even on the other side of the road so good luck ';-)
