The Pill Box is presently hidden by vegetation.

Today (August 2017): The Pill Box is again hidden by vegetation.

Graham Burgess is looking to carry out work on the historic Pill Box on Newbury Road.

PILL BOX RESTORATION

As an option for the restoration of the roadside view of the Pill Box on Newbury Street Whitchurch I am looking for volunteers to do a bit of lopping of vegetation. It wont need any people and it will be a few hours of work.

Already some are lined up – need to be fit as the bank slopes.

Tools can be supplied.

Work was carried out to renovate and clear the site in 2014 but it is again overgrown.

Work was carried out to renovate and clear the site in 2015 but it is again overgrown.

Aim is to expose the eye sculpture overlooking the road, the one that is an eye shape made from 25 pieces of the old pill box, each one representing one of our men who died in the 2nd Wold War.
