Location In a small rectangular compound close to TV and radio masts at Penlan Argoed Farm at the end of Penlan Road.
Description LOCKED The post is owned by England Electrical Communications and is used to house PMR radio repeaters. The post is securely locked and alarmed. All surface features remain intact with the grey/green paint in fair condition. The concrete apron around the hatch is breaking up and the ground at the eastern end has eroded leaving the ventilation shaft standing on several courses of bricks. The hatch is locked with a steel bar. There is an aerial mast bolted to the side of the ventilation shaft with a second lattice mast nearby. Cables feed from these through the ventilation louvers, which have been damaged. The post has now been connected to the mains electricity supply and it has internal lighting. Original ROC artifact remain including the cupboard, shelf (detached) WB1401 carrier receiver and WB1410 filter unit, Tele-talk (broken), 2 cloud posters indicating this was a ROCMET post, BT junction boxes and wiring and the light. The post has been built back to front.
