East Lothian Beach Defences

Recent Page Trail:

Although not identified formally as a stop line, the East Lothian coast between North Berwick and Dunbar on the south of the Forth of Forth has a significant number of tank traps, dragon's teeth, observation posts, pillboxes, and even anti-glider posts evident, many of which are still extant to some degree. Some are known to have been moved, having been reused to construct later defences in the form of sea walls.

The large concrete cylinders visible in the first photograph would have been rolled across the road to block access to the nearby beach.
