North west pillbox, Fort House, A193 (east side off), Hartley, Seaton Sluice, Seaton Valley - Northumberland (UA)

Pillbox or defensible latrine, circa 1917. Rare survival as part of a World War I fort. Suffering from structural problems and lack of maintenance. A repair scheme has been drawn up with funding from Historic England but this project has subsequently stalled and a solution is yet to be finalised and implemented.
