From your photo it looks like an Ordnance Survey (OS)Triangulation (Trig) Point. If it is there will be a bronze plate on top with three deep grooves radiating from a circle that was used to sit the theodolite on for a precice location. OS maps have the Trig points marked if you want to check

No, I don't think it's a trig point, it didn't have the markings on the top, and the sides seem to be dark glass?!
