County Cumberland
Date opened May 1960
Date closed October 1968
Location On a low mound in the South West corner of a field on the East side of an unnamed minor road.
Description DEMOLISHED The only evidence of the post is the mound with the FSM pipe cut off at ground level and one side of the compound fencing. Looking down the FSM pipe the monitoring room below is still clear with some water on the floor. When inspected in the early 1980's the post was intact and open. Twin bunks and a single bed (dismantled), cupboard, table, shelf, light, wiring and GPO connection boxes remained in place. It is assumed all those items are still there below ground.
