פילבוקס
עמדת שמירה ותצפית שהוקמה בתקופת המנדט הבריטי, במאורעות תרצ"ו.
מקור השם בצורתו הגלילית שהזכירה קופסת גלולות (PILL BOX).
הכניסה לעמדה היא דרך דלת פלדה. מדרגות מובילות מהדלת לעמדת השמירה שבקומה העליונה של הפילבוקס.
דרך חרכי ירי וחלונות ניתן להגן מהעמדה ולערוך תצפית על האזור שבו ממוקם הפילבוקס.
ברחבי הארץ פזורים מבנים כאלה (פילבוקסים) מימי המנדט הבריטי. חלקם מוזנחים וחלקם מהווים אתרים היסטוריים.
הפילבוקס אומץ על ידי תלמידי בית הספר "מעיין", למען הקהילה, בשיתוף עיריית יבנה, איגוד ערים לאיכות הסביבה דרום יהודה, המועצה לשימור אתרים והמשרד להגנת הסביבה.

The PillBox
A stand and observation post established during the British Mandate, during the 1825 events.
The name originated in the cylindrical form that resembled a pill box.
The entrance to the post is through a steel door. Stairs lead from the door to the guard post on the top floor of the pillbox.
Through slits and windows, you can protect the stand and observe the area where the pillbox is located.
Such buildings (pillboxes) are scattered throughout the country from the days of the British Mandate. Some are neglected and some are historic sites.
The pillbox was adopted by students from the Ma’ayan School, for the community, in cooperation with the Municipality of Yavne, the Association of Urban Cities of Southern Judea, the Council for Conservation of Sites and the Ministry of Environmental Protection.
