|Location||On a low mound in a high fenced square compound on the east side of a field boundary. 100 yards north of trig point and 100 yards south of A487|
|Description||LOCKED All surface features remain intact with the light green paint in good condition. Both the FSM and BPI pipes are surrounded by a concrete column. The T-bar key hole has a small hinged cover over it which seems to be a local feature. The access shaft is unusually high with a high
single step up to it. The concrete apron around the shaft is also raised.
The owners of the post kindly allowed us access to document the inside. They had been unable to access the post for many years due to seized locks. Inside was found to be in good condition with the Teletalk, WB1400 and Maps & Cloud Posters – these were then removed to the farmhouse for safe custody. The inside of the post is now stripped of anything of value. The owner intends to keep the post as a time capsule for when his grand-children are older – future visits without permission are discouraged please.
