Pillbox at the Peak [????- ]

On a 1955 map of the Peak I noticed there's a pillbox marked (I've circled it in red). I don't remember hearing about this one before - can anyone add any photos or information?

Looks like the walls of the typical pillbox ...

I am new to this type of design of walls, haven't come across any before. Not really sure if it's a pillbox, but the tunnel is similar to the one found at 411, only without the top part.

Top left: mini tunnel

Top right: brickwork at the bottom of the of the two walls left standing

Bottom: the two walls with indents and patterned wide bands.

 

Mystery fort and mini tunnel [????- ]

The marker is for the fort/pillbox, whereas the mini tunnel is just below it.

It's composed of a mini tunnel, a part of wall which we often seen at pillboxes, then comes two thick walls that look like it's been built above a boulder at one end, and some bricks on the other end.

Not sure to whom do these ruins belong to, although the mini tunnel looks a bit like the one at PB411.

There are some indents on one of the thick walls, with a wide patterned band along the top of the two walls, I haven't seen this type of design before.

Although someone wrote 426 on the tree trunk, the location belongs to Pillbox 425.
