Hi Toff,
This is a MG bunker from the Interbellum (the years in between WW I and WWII), you can find more examples on this website, http://www.bunkergordel.be/

Hi Toff,
most of the bunkers built by the Belgians were well camouflaged some were painted as sheds or houses but many also had a more permanent way to be diguised, they for instance recieved rooftiles.
Some of the bigger once a great to visit.
Greetings Jack.
