|Description||LOCKED All surface features remain intact with some flaking of the blue/grey paint. There is some soil erosion around the concrete apron. The hatch of locked although the padlock hasps have been cut and it can be opened with a Scottish ‘T’ bat key. Internally there is a folding table, shelf, cupboard, small wall mounted shelf, large and small splints, 3 duffle coats, waste bin, candle holder, washing bowl, mess tins, crockery, kettle, teapot, 3 pairs of Wellington boots, light/switch, fuse box/wiring, battery box, cluster map, rope, aircraft posters, resuscitation poster, visitors log and a broom.
22.11.14: Tthe gorse bushes are now gone (not sure if this is seasonal or not) and the hatch has been burst open at the hinges. The whole mechanism is buckled so I wasn't able to get it put back into place. The monitoring room is still dry and free of damage; however most of the items that were previously in the Post have now gone. The wellington boots remain, as do some mats, the Elsan, a resuscitation poster and a bottle of sodium chloride. There's a blow up mattress in the Post.
|The base of the aircraft post remains on the hilltop overlooking the post. The last telegraph poles has a BT junction box fixed to it, which was the connection point for the telephone to the aircraft post.
22.11.2014: The phone connection for the aircraft post is also no longer there.
