The photographs in this book represent 56 of the estimated 18,000 pillboxes built in Britain between 1940 and 1945. The concrete and brick structures, designed as lookouts with gun emplacements from which to shoot at the enemy, were built during the Second World War in anticipation of a German invasion. Lining large swathes of the British coastline as well as appearing inland forming ’stop lines’ around major urban centres, the architecturally minimal structures were never used. Instead, for the past 65 years they have stood sentinel over the British landscape.
Sentinel was first published to coincide with an exhibtion of the same name at George and Jorgen Gallery, London, May 2011.
