A 'Curry Stool'.

A curry stool is a type of survey mark used in peaty areas where a pillar would sink and natural rock was not available. The concrete, in the form of three arms meeting at a central point, sits on the peat and it was hoped to be a stable platform. They are named after Corporal Curry of the Royal Engineers.[1]

The following Curry Stools are listed by the OS:

A list and a photo album of curry stools are available from T:UK.
