Wylam Pillbox is well hidden in the Summer due to the Farmer making Crops. I've only seen it a couple of times and finally decided to have a look. Suprisingly Small when we got there. The entrance was small as well, and also was the inside obviously.

The Inside wasn't pretty, it was dirty and the floor was littered with random rubbish, old chairs were dumped in as well. Happy to see the original metal window covers :smile

It is doubtful that your last photo has anything to do with the Pillbox?
There will however be more pillboxes in the close proximity to this one:thumb Check Google earth to see if you can locate the others. Thanks for sharing this and welcome to the Forum:coffee
