Well done grandarog, it is one of the Joss Bay sound mirrors.

One was carved into the Cliff and concrete faced, the other was a seperate structure.

By 1921 they were removed and the Technology moved down the Coast.

Platform to do with the Sound Mirrors at Joss Bay. Phoyo Andrew_Grantham.

"However, in 1918 the area became home to a research station that conducted a secret programme of acoustic trials under the guidance of Major Wiliam Sansome Tucker, an imaginative and ambitious advocate of sound as a military resource and tool of defence. Just north of the beach huts a station HQ would soon appear, resembling little more than a shed adorned with sandbags. The nearby cliffs would provide a well orientated catchment area for sound sources originating near northern France, and the stage would be set for a series of sonic experiments that ranged from the innovative to bizarre.
