Post Name CAWOOD
OS Grid Reference SE58053894
County Yorkshire
Date opened May 1961
Date closed After 1980 before 1991 (Probably 1982/3)
Location On a mound on the east side of the B1222 at its junction with an un-named minor road and the access drive to Mount Pleasant Farm.
Description LOCKED The post closed early because the walls cracked internally, it was not replaced and is now completely flooded. All surface features remain intact with some green paint remaining. The ventilation shaft is partly buried. The post was open for some years but the hatch is now locked with a padlock; the owner doesn’t know who locked it!

Reported by Obs SAC Harrison that the post was actually closed because of a massive flood. It was decided to save the cost of refurbishment and move the crew to other posts as there was a risk of further floods.
