WWII Pillbox - at the foot of the Holm Branch - I think.

It was at the foot of the Holm Branch in its original alignment, it'll be a bit out the Scapa Road now.

I remember it as a great thing to play in, though its proximity to the Ratty Burn makes me squirm a bit now. However playing in it came to a halt when somebody dumped a dead horse in it. Or it might have been a coo- it was 25-30 years ago...

Sorry but we used it as a toliet on our way to and from scapa pier to fish in mid 50s

[I'm assuming fish isn't a typo... Steven]
