Property in Woolwich: River views, vacant possession.

I went to an interesting presentation earlier in the week by an archeologist from the Thames Discovery Project, which is working to explore hidden treasures on the foreshore of the river. They mentioned work they've been doing in Woolwich, including the above WW2 pill box. Apparently not a pill box, in fact, but a mine-watching station.
.
Intrigued, having never heard of it before, I cycled out along the Thames Path this afternoon, and there - just past the Margaret Ness beacon - it was. Rather rubbish-strewn and graffiti-covered, but otherwise intact. A fascinating historical gem.
