Post Name SHARPITOR
OS Grid Reference SX55657003
County Devonshire
Date opened April 1963
Date closed September 1991
Location 250 yards south east of B3212 on the south side of a rock marked path.
Description DEMOLISHED The post was clad in stone to blend in with the
surroundings. The post was demolished for safety reasons by South West Water. The position of two adjacent compounds is clearly visible in the grass with a low raised mound marking the site of the underground post. The two back filled shafts are clearly visible protruding slightly from the ground. There is some brick rubble including some of the stone cladding. There is a metal ring in a stone which was probably an aerial guying point.

At the road there is a small car parking area bounded by a semi circle of rocks. There was a removable metal pole between two of the rocks to allow cars to drive up to the post. The pole has now gone but the padlock securing
it is still in place. The path up to the post across the moor is marked by rocks on the right hand side.
