Pillbox near Cottingwood Common (Morpeth; Hebron)
A six-sided pillbox was built near the Old Race Course in World War II. It was made of concrete with a projecting entrance and openings for rifles and machine guns. Nearby are traces of what may have been a zigzag trench that might also be part of the wartime defences.
