Blackawall, Flotta, alongside road being constructed to a forthcoming large eyesore on top of the hill!

It is indeed,do you know the history (of the building, not the 'forthcoming large eyesore')?

Something to do with marking out property owned by the coastguard?

There's another of these on the back of the barn, with No 1 on it, only it's been placed on its side, and so it looks like this was recycled material, most likely from a nearby wartime site.
The house of Blackawall was last occupied by Lizzie and Tommy Groat, who was a colporteur many years ago.
