Lower Medway Pillboxes

I first published this article in 2018 when I had spent some time in Kent and after walking the River Medway around Maidstone realised that a large proportion of the Second World War pillboxes still remained. There is no interpretation with this article, it is purely a record of each pillbox, its location on a map, and some images of each box as I recorded them. The pillboxes line the western banks of the River Medway and do not represent the full series of defensive works constructed in this area; there was a vast programme of anti-tank ditches, obstacles, road blocks and infantry defences. If you would like further information on any defences featured on this page, please get in touch and I will do my best to assist.
