Tyne and Wear HER(5349): High Level Bridge, pillbox - Details
High Level Bridge, pillbox
Pillbox - slot is visible high up on the bridge adjacent to Queen's Lane. The pillbox was partly demolished in the late 1990s as photographs of that time taken from the Castle Keep show a substantial concrete and brick hut above the slot. The moulding has been removed below the slot and a concrete lintel has been inserted. The slot is blocked with a scaffolding plank.
