For a payment of £60,000 all three could be yours.
They are part of a six-acre site on Sheppey to be sold next week.
The plot of land alongside the old Ferry Road at Elmley, Sheppey, next to the Kingsferry Bridge is to be auctioned by Clive Emson at the Kent County Showground, Detling, on Monday, October 30. It has a guide price of £60,000 to £70,000.
It includes two fishing lakes, a reed pond, a Second World War pillbox and part of a railway embankment.
It is the first time the freehold land has come up for sale in more than 30 years and is among 179 lots going under the hammer.
Auction valuer Dave Henwood said: "The site covers 6.2 acres (2.5 hectares) and may offer potential for mooring boats on The Swale and the use of lakes for carp fishing."
But he warned: "All consents must be obtained from Swale council before any changes are made.
"Having been off the market for more than three decades we anticipate interest from those looking for an investment which might also provide business opportunities."
The small concrete forts or bunkers were first called pillboxes in an article in the Scotsman newspaper on September 13, 1917.
Reference was also made to them in the Daily Mail on February 26, 1923.
It is probably because the original designs were based on a octagon, which looked like a small box used to carry medical pills.
The defences allowed wide views by defending soldiers armed inside with guns.
They were built of reinforced concrete to withstand direct fire or bomb blasts.
The one at Elmley was probably used to defend Sheppey from invading Germans who might have made their way up The Swale from Faversham. The old Kingsferry Bridge would have been a legitimate target.
Invaders could also have attacked Ridham Dock and made their way past Queenborough to Sheerness Dockyard which was a Royal Navy base at the time.
