Am on the hunt for Pill boxes on the Wirral and only know of the ones here-

Bromborough Pool Bridge,
Brimstage Road,
Parkgate,
Leasowe Shore,

...and some others which i have passed but cant remember where i'd seen them.

Could do a search on tinterweb but that ways boring so thought i would ask you guys instead.

Does anyone know of anymore??

Would like to go and visit them and take pics and stuff.

Maybe there is already a post about? i did a search to no avail

I see this topic is running on other sites at the moment ....

There is a brilliant Defence of Britain (DOB) file for Google Earth in which you can select Pillboxes etc.

A better link would have been straight (well nearly straight) to the DOB google KMZ dataset ... (it was hidden at the bottom of the page of the previous link).
