TQ8158 : Civiley wood and a strange platform

taken 13 years ago, near to Thurnham, Kent, Great Britain

Civiley wood and a strange platform
Civiley wood and a strange platform
Meadow on the top of the North Downs. I don't know what the platform is for, it's not marked on the map. There are several transmitting masts in the area but none of the others look like this. A few months later and the platform has sprouted a spherical tank, presumably a water tank for nearby houses.
Update, March 2014: Danny Robinson has solved my mystery with his recent shots showing my guess was completely wrong.
