There's an identical one near Dover as well, I think they are some sort of radar station, but would be interesting to know what they are.

I was under the impression that they are part of the UK's set of beacons for air traffic control, but I may be wrong.

Well he is a geek then, and glad to say what I though was indeed correct.
