OS record this trig destroyed August 1980. Car main dealerships now occupy the location. Early maps show the area as mixed light industrial and government buildings, the trig being on the roof of one such governemtn bldg. So obviously some sort of government control centre. Barnwood is home to a permanent nuclear emergency response centre, perhaps in a former time it was in these buildings.

Destroyed in 1980. Now a car showrooms. I know a lot of people there, but I've had no luck tracking down what the 'control centre' was. There was a fire and ambulance station further up Eastern Avenue, but I can't see why the 'control' would be some way away. I'll ask around
