Description OPEN All surface features remain intact with the green paint in good condition. A metal dome indicates this was a master post. When visited in 1999 the hatch was locked but in December 2002 it was found to be open. Internally only the table, shelf, supboard and copper earth straps remained in place. The owner has been informed and intends to secure the post. In 2007 the post is locked and the paint is now peeling badly.
October 2015: Open and on the hatch was on the floor, very overgrown around the post.
