A Royal Observer Corps monitoring post. The site is located in the middle of a field next to Carne Beacon Tumulus. The site was built as part of an extensive network of posts designed to confirm and report hostile aircraft and nuclear attacks on the United Kingdom. The site would have been constructed after 1925 and at the time of the Defence of Britain survey (1995-2002) the site was found to have been destroyed.
