Location Located on a low mound in a large compound (probably not the post compound) 150 metres up a farm track on the north side of the farmyard. A telegraph pole stands in one corner of the compound but this serves nearby houses. The track begins on the SW side of Bracoden Road, just before the houses.
Description OPEN All surface features remain intact but in poor condition. The concrete apron around the shaft has gone. The ventilation shaft adjacent to the access shaft is partly demolished with its louvers missing. They are also missing on the main ventilation shaft which is in good condition. The hatch is detached with the corners bent up, the step is also detached and until recently was sitting on top of the hatch. The BPI pipe is bent over. Internally the post is strewn with rubble. Some wiring and the cupboard remain in place. The table and shelf are detached from the wall.
