Fulwell Sound Mirror

In order to give early warning of approaching Zeppelins sound mirrors were erected along the east coast of England including this one at Fulwell. Sound was reflected of the concrete mirror and focussed onto a trumpet shaped sound collector and the listener was able to plot the approach of the aircraft. This way 15 minutes warning could be given to the defences to get ready to repel the aggressor.
