Internally much remains including cupboard, folding table and shelf, folding chair, two other chairs, papers, two post diaries (now removed), ROC magazines, battery switching box, copper strap around the walls, wiring, posters, tool board, two pair of wellington boots, four internal lights including one outside the toilet door, 3 mattresses, fork, scythe, fire blanket in box and a home made maroon simulator. The post was sold by Crown Castle Communications in 2003. When visited in 2004, some external repairs had been carried out, the fence had been repaired and the grass had been cut.
