The Obelisk on Ballard Down

The Obelisk on Ballard Down, Isle Of Purbeck, Dorset, United Kingdom (UK).

The Obelisk at Ballard Down commemorates the provision of a new supply of drinking water for Swanage in 1883. It was taken down in 1941 as it was a landmark that might have aided enemy aircraft during World War 2, but was re-erected in 1952.
