This is one of six Marinepeilstände (MP) observation towers that were built on high points. They are the most obvious symbol of German construction. Each observation slit of a tower observed for one particular battery and was fitted with range finding equipment.  

MP 5 was fitted with granite on the outside of the concrete to resemble a Martello tower, a fortification built in the 19th century in many places on Guernsey.
