OS Grid Reference SJ18537504
County Flintshire
Date opened April 1964
Date closed September 1991
Location On a low mound in a large compound on hilltop beside a cellphone mast. 200 yards north of Brynford Hill (B5121) and on the north side of a small quarry.
Description LOCKED All surface features remain intact with some flaking of the light green paint. The step is detached and the hatch is locked. The site is owned by Millennium Communications who have erected a cellphone aerial. Unusually they have not demolished the post and there is no obvious evidence that they use it for anything. Having been closed in 1968, the post re-opened in a regional reorganisation in November 1981.
