Post Name HERSTMONCEUX
OS Grid Reference TQ61961183
County Sussex
Date opened January 1962
Date closed October 1968
Location In the south east corner of a field, a few yards north of footpath and 200 yards south of Hailsham Road (A271)
Description LOCKED All surface features are intact and in very good condition with the locking bar still in place. Considering this is an early closure the internal condition is amazingly good with all furniture in place including two bunk beds and a single bed, all with mattresses and blankets, table, shelf and cupboard. The post is clean and free of any vandalism. When visited in 1997 the post was open but it is an unusually well preserved post considering its early closure and the owner has now locked it to ensure it remains in good conditions. A number of original artefacts were removed by the owner in the late 60's - these have all been retained.
