This concrete post, above The Quarry, is inscribed near the top with the letters TH. It is one of a number of markers which delineate the boundary of the Trinity House owned part of Skokholm, around the lighthouse. Although most of the island was purchased from the Dale Castle Estate in 2006 by the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, a small part, some 7.16 acres, remains owned by the Corporation of Trinity House. This area includes a helicopter landing pad and some sheds built into a rock outcrop.
