Pillbox. There is said to be a pillbox to the east of this footpath. It was part of the Outer London Defence Ring which encircled London in the Second World War.  An anti-tank ditch crossed this area coming from the River Lee zigzagged across Perry Hill to Bumbles Green.  The whole entire section has pillboxes along it – big octagonal ones designed for up to 10 men with their armoury and a machine-gun post on top.  At some times of the year the anti-tank ditch line should show as a crop mark on the fields.
