I have walked along here many times and not noticed this before, nor have other Geograph contributors. Perhaps the vegetation has only recently been cleared from around it. It reads "SSW Co Ltd 1909" and below that some more characters that look like N28.

I haven't worked out yet what the SSW Co. was. There was a cable company of that name founded in 1903 but it stood for Siemens-Schuckertwerke and operated in Eastern Europe, so that seems unlikely.
