The location is on an elevated clearing, made from waste cinders from the steam locomotives (The 'Tip', with the 'Valley' just south). Crewe Works is just north, and Rolls Royce is NE. So the spotter tower was a high metal tripod structure with a top platform and cover. So the spotter would stand there all night watching for enemy planes coming from the SE, to bomb the railway works (making tanks during the war) and RR (also making weapons). The mark is shown on the 1954 map - the tower, with its bolt, was dismantled in 1956
