Nice accurate placement my friend. Like you, I use Panoramio to expose the world to specialist stuff - no boring sunset photos on our web pages!!

Do you find the pillboxes by cruising Google Earth? If not have you "found" any that way? Or by using Street View? or do you have other sources of information.

Keep up the good work - this tool (Panoramio) is very valuable but note that you can enter as much text as you want also in either the description field or your own comments field. It's also good that Google accepts this kind of work as a function of its website, isn't it.

I uses a database which places them on the OS digital mapping on my laptop, I then check out the areas on Google Earth and see if they are viable. It's then a case of tramping along the river or canal in this case and checking what is there. Many are well hidden in the undergrowth. Streetview is no use unless they are near a road. I also map them on Google Maps.
