Date opened May 1959
Date closed September 1991
Location On South side of track 200 yards East from 'Harrison's Barn' on North Street
Description OPEN All surface features remain intact with the green and red paint flaking badly. The compound fencing has gone but there is still a gate in the hedge. The FSM pipe has been bent over by vandals and the hatch and top of the access shaft is badly damaged. The hatch is locked and can be opened with a 'T' bar key but as the hatch frame is partly detached it can be lifted and the hatch unlocked without the key. Internally the post has been badly vandalised and is rubbish strewn. Remaining furniture includes the cupboard, folding shelf and table, a second cupboard with two drawers, a long seat (from an ambulance), bed frame, two chairs and dexion shelving. There is also a battery box, fork, dustpan, utensils, light and wiring with polystyrene tiles on the ceiling and floor tiles on the walls.
