A Royal Observer Corps monitoring post. The site is located (with the surface features intact) in a small rectangular compound next to the trig. station on Woolbury Ring. 600 yards north of the old A272 and north of Stockbridge Down. 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. At the time of the Defence of Britain survey (1995-2002) the site was found to remain in a fair condition. The site was opened during February 1962 and opened again between 1975 and 1983 and closed in October 1968 and finally in 1991.
