Harbour Bunker

Fragments of a destroyed concrete pillbox, of unknown type, lay scattered along the Christchurch harbour shoreline for about 30m, where there is a slight knoll on the Hengistbury Head side. Not shown on wartime records nor identified on previous surveys of wartime defences, these remains are a mystery. Although, the nature of the concrete and the diagnostic features that remain suggest it was a substance structure. Further investigation amongst the undergrowth are required.
