Spigot Mortar mount opposite 73 Waldingfield Road


The steel spigot is well concealed by the roadside ivy. It is set into the circular concrete column which was originally sited in a pit, long since filled in. During the invasion scare of 1940 two members of the Home Guard would have mounted their mortar on the spigot and fired at German tanks if they had landed on the East Coast and come down Gallows Hill.
