The structure on the grass is the antenna and power source of a Rural Wireless installation which is designed to enable broadband internet access in areas which are remote from land lines. This achieved by means of harnessing wind and solar energy to power various types of radio communications equipment.

Developed by Strathclyde University's "Centre for White Space Communications", it is designed to be installable by two people and requires no planning permission.
