just found this

This is a WWII Type FW3/26 Pillbox, located next to the M53. It is a square pillbox with a 6in. concrete roof supported on corner brick pillars, with internal anti ricochet walls and simple entranceway [steps down into pillbox]. Faces north-east, traces of dark green camouflage paint on pillars, built 1940/41.

There are the remains of one on the footpath running along the Fender by the Woodchurch Estate (and I believe it was the scene of and unsolved murder in 1955)

There is one on Caldy road just off Caldy roundabout at the bottom of somebody's garden next to the road. I drive past it all the time. I will get a picture sometime. Can't see it on Google earth or bing maps.

you probably wont be able to see all sorts on bing maps due to half of the wirral pictures outdated by nearly ten years. anything past birkenhead park on bing is as it was over a decade ago

All the birds-eye-views are relatively recent on Bing, on Google earth it has a historic function so you can see previous satellite images.

I am sure the pill box has been there long before any of those photos on bing or Google where taken. In fact long before the invention of colour photography. laugh laugh

Seriously though I think its obscured by trees when you look from above.
