SS83 Infantry Fighting Pillbox
Posted on February 6, 2016 / 662
poi type : Pillbox
Location : Gibraltar
Description : The position appears to be reasonably sound although access is a little awkward.
Condition : Fair

This is a World War 2 pillbox located on the cliff edge overlooking Little Bay. The position has an entrance, protected by a loophole facing south.  Inside there is a small lobby are, presumably for standby, then a narrow corridor with two long loopholes for rifle fire. One of the loopholes has been covered over with a wooden shutter which is wedged in position.  There appears to be something like a metal stove on the floor.

There is an unusual embrasure or hole, low down in the outer facing wall, as shown in the photographs.  This could have been an old gun embrasure, or possibly for a light anti tank weapon to fire down into the bay.

This fortification stands above Little Bay Fort.
