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 which has informed an updated structural report in April 2019. There have been recent discussions with the new owner of the site about the repair of the pillbox alongside the repair and re-use of other listed heritage assets on the site.
