About the memorial: A toposcope is a kind of graphic display erected at viewing points on hills, mountains or other high places which indicates the direction, and usually the distance, to notable landscape features which can be seen from that point. The photograph shows the explanatory plaque not the actual gadget which is on top of a round stone cairn. It commemorates the naval action in 1779 between Commodore Paul Jones of the US Navy ship Bon Homme and Captain Sir Richard Pearson in the RN frigate Serapis.
