There are several 'Vickers-Armstrong' Fire-Watchers' posts on the island, two of which feature here. These are based on the 'Consol' shelter, and have horizontal observation slits in the top. Some models of fire-watchers' post were actually fitted with a small desk and a telephone. The doors on these posts have long since vanished, presumably after the hinges rusted away. It is unclear whether these fire-watchers' posts are located in their original position.
