Nuclear fall out monitoring station. about 20 yards from the trig is the capital of what appears to be a fairly large underground bunker built in 1950 by the Royal Observation Corps to monitor fall out in the event of a Nuclear War! very cool. There's apparently around 1500 of these across the country.
