Location On a low mound in an 'L' shaped compound in the north west corner of a field on the east side of the track to a reservoir. 100 yards North of un-named minor road.
Description LOCKED All surface features remain intact and in good condition with some flaking of the grey paint. A metal dome and aerial bracket on the ventilation shaft indicates this was a master post. There is an overgrown access gate in the hedge by the road. The post was bought by a local policeman who wanted to preserve it as a memento of the cold war but to date no work has been done on the site. The hatch is locked and internally the post is in very good condition.
