This may be the site at Airy Point shown as a building on a chart of 1851 and a trig point on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map. It may also relate to World War II activity. Further survey is necessary to determine what this feature is.
Visited 2009. Nothing was visible in this area. The NGR for this site places the structure on the foreshore, some 20-30 metres from the shoreline.
