News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Yes, other side of the line Rare. You can see them on the pics of RFC Bekesbourne post.
Aware of that one along the Adisham Road, from a distance, can't see a way across to it though. Will find John's photos though, thanks. No, the one I was looking for was a machine gun post that was meant to have been sited alongside the dragons teeth, think it's gone, found some rubble nearby but nothing else.

Nice find for the dragons teeth, where exactly are they ? are they by the footbridge over the railway line of Aerodrome Road.

Is this the pillbox you are looking for, not the best aerial view but it is there.

These border the London to Dover line where it passes alongside the old aerodrome, and as far as I'm aware they're all in the original position.
I know there was a machine gun emplacement nearby but I've not been able to pinpoint it yet.   
Many are etched with numbers and initials, no idea of the relevance as they don't run in any logical sequence.
