Swansea Pill-Box

I finally found the opportunity to visit one of the World War 2 pill-boxes that will feature in my third volume of Explore Gower books - the first two being The Verry Volk and Gower Ghosts

This particular building, located midway along Swansea Bay, is heavily besanded and only the higher portions of the construction could be identified on my visit.:

The shot below is probably my favourite pic. I like the sweep of the dark cloud and can feel a tension between this defensive fortification and the distant sky as it guards again Nazi attack.

 I really need to crack on with this project as it forms part of the three books I aim to publish in 2023, the other two being Cold Comfort and One Night Buried.
