Sitting in a cornfield atop the fast eroding cliffs of Kilnsea is one of the earliest examples of the acoustic or sound mirror – a means of amplifying the engine sounds of approaching Zeppelin airships intent on bombing the docks of Hull.

Although it must have provided little in the way of early warning, in the days before electronic detection, it must’ve been a morale booster, and a confusing sight for the German airship pilots…
