Description OPEN. Externally in fair condition although rather weathered. The present owner was going to demolish the surface features a few years ago but had such difficulty removing the air-shaft that he has decided to leave the rest. Internally the post is in excellent condition apart from a little rubble from the air-shaft. The original white paintworkpaint-work is still in good. Remaining features include two bunks and a single bed, cupboard, table, shelf, battery shelf and some wiring. After closure the post was sold back to the farm for 100.
