Nuclear Monitoring Posts.

The one above is at Mellor. The column in the middle is a viewpoint built to celebrate the start of the Millenium. Salmesbury airfield is very close by. On the entry hatch this plaque gives some helpful details.

And the one below is near Longridge, with an FSM (Fixed Survey Meter) pipe extended. These devices were to monitor radiation levels after an attack.
