Antenna guy rope foundations

At roughly the highest point on the common - not very high at all since the terrain is quite flat - was situated the main communications antenna.

I say antenna because this is all this feature could possibly relate to. Nothing concrete (forgive the pun) is to be found online about this, though one source questioned what you see here were possibly barrage balloon guy rope bases. Unlikely - they are too close together for that.

However, what you see here are all that remains today: the five concrete foundations together with very solid metal loops. Quite difficult to tell their size, but those metal loops are a good 1.5 inches thick, so pretty damn strong I would say.
