Location In an overgrown rectangular compound on the East side of Moor Lane at the South end of a caravan site.
Description LOCKED All surface features remain intact with the green paint flaking badly. A green painted and capped pipe protrudes 8" out of the ground close to the ventilation shaft, its purpose is unknown. A dome on the ventilation shaft indicates this was a master post. Since the post inspection in 2000 the hatch has been damaged and is partly detached. Internally the post has a little standing water on the floor. Very little remains inside, remaining items include: table, shelf, cupboard, BPI mount, light, air pipe for pump up mast, coax cable for radio, copper earth straps, one chair, small splint, fire blanket in its box and the battery switching box. The post was sold in summer 2003 and the present owner does not allow access.
