I'm not sure why there is a metal junction box out here, miles from habitation. The dark coloured container at Buckham's Walls can be seen in the distance but the ruined farmhouse next to it has not been inhabited since the early 1940s. The aluminium box has two electrical terminals on the front and may have something to do with the military who use the area for training.
