Post Name BACUP
OS Grid Reference SD86442281
County Lancashire
Date opened June 1965
Date closed September 1991
Location Beside Maden Road diagonally opposite the last house No. 24. Next to cellphone mast on the edge of Bacup Golf Course.
Description LOCKED All surface features remain intact with the green paint flaking badly. A dome on the ventilation shaft indicates this was a master post. The top of the ventilation shaft is offset to allow room for the aerial mast bracket which has been removed.
In a really sorry state. The hatch is no longer attached, it's held in place by paving slabs. The inside is very poor, it was 3 inches deep in water and it hadn't really rain for quite a while.
