Post Name OTTERHAM
OS Grid Reference SX14758845
County Cornwall
Date opened July 1962
Date closed September 1991
Location On the west side of track to radio mast, 60 yards West of A39. Between two tumuli.
Description OPEN All surface features remain intact but the hatch is very rusty and ill fitting. The post has unusual metal frames over all four ventilation louvres with the openings pointing down at the ground. Presumable fitted by the observers to stop fallout entering. The hatch is open. The table, shelf and cupboard are in place together with two bed ends, a small splint, light, some papers and two signs. One says 'maroon' and the other, on a pointed wooden pole for sticking in the ground saying 'Danger do not touch unexploded maroon'.
