Much under rated. View from top is great. It might be in the middle of the industrial estate but it's a little piece of history just waiting to be discovered.

Started walking towards this. Miles from pier it seems. As we neared it appeared to be behind wooden hoardings so we turned back as toddler getting grumpy. Looks interesting, but badly placed.

Unexpected monument, information boards and worth a look if somewhat out of the way, in rather an industrial area.
