I think this was some sort of addition later by radio enthusiasts for mounting an aeriel.

Nice one mate :thumb

This is one of the stone clad posts designed to be camouflaged and blend in with their scenery, sadly it's the last of it's type and in a poor state :(

If you want more info its on my site (link in my sig)

You are right saying it is a Master Post, but the dome you are talking about is on every post. That is the mount for the Ground Zero Indicator.

The dome subbrit mentions is on the side of the vent shaft, visable in your first picture.
