Joss bay had two sound mirrors one being a slab, this was cut into the cliff near by the castle keep hotel , now replaced by flats.a slight indentation can still be seen near the top of the cliff.
Checking the site where the round mirror was, which was a timber frame rendered. a few years ago the telephone cable blocks were still in place.

I haven't seen one like that. From the picture it doesn't look dished to focus the sound.

During WWI a 20 feet adjustable sound mirror was located at Joss Gap, Kingsgate in 1918.
