Description LOCKED The compound well maintained, externally the post in very good condition with all surface features intact although the hatch has been damaged by vandals. A new telephone line and poles were installed in 1997 (perhaps by mistake by BT as many local poles were replaced at the same time). Internally the furniture is 'non standard' with a long bench with several cupboards, dexion shelving with curtains, curtains in front of the bunks although only the mattresses now remain. Some papers, kitchen utensils, notices & wiring. Locked when first inspected in the spring of 1997, open in July 1998 locked in September 2002
