Post Name HOLSWORTHY
OS Grid Reference SS34990386
County Devonshire
Date opened June 1960
Date closed September 1991
Location In a large square compound on a low hilltop, 100 yards south of Windmill Road.
Description WELDED All surface features remain intact but the post is set very low in the ground and what appears to be the BPI pipe is offset from its usual position and is located 3 feet to one side of the ventilation shaft. The green paint is flaking. The hatch is locked with the words 'Danger - keep out' painted on it. In recent years this post has been broken into on a number of occasions and the owner has had to replace the padlocks at his own expense. Following continued vandalism the hatch has now been welded shut.
