Telephone tapping points have a socket for connecting field telephones to the military telephone network. They are used for providing safety communications during training. The socket is contained within a concrete box with a hinged steel door. Since the 1990s these have been replaced, when necessary, by a short metal post on which the socket is mounted. Some cable junctions are marked on the ground by a concrete slab, inscribed with the number of the signal squadron responsible for maintaining Dartmoor’s telephone network until the 1950s.
