Radar installation linked to Royal Navy gunnery range.

The station consists of an early 20th Century terrace of three stone-built, flat-roofed three-bay single-storey cottages facing NW. Each cottage has a small extension to the rear, where the sheltered main entrance is accompanied by an adjacent store. Adjacent, is a single-storey building of similar construction with door and window openings to the inland-facing SW elevation only. 15m to the N is an earlier single-storey cottage with a pitched corrugated-steel roof, which faces NE, towards the coast. This is possibly part of the signal station depicted on the 2nd edition of the OS 25-inch map (NC27SE 16). Approximately 50m to the NNE is a small rectangular stone-walled enclosure with a circular concrete plinth set in the middle (NC27SE 12.01), of unknown origin.
