Fog Signal House

This hexagonal house is now empty, but it was used to relay information up to the computers in the CIL house up near the car park. It was built as the Fog Signal House. When the Fog Signal was discontinued and  a Racon Beacon was installed on the top of the house. And its control cabinet was put inside. Details of the Explosive Fog Signal are in the Mizen file linked at the end of the page.
