Structures
A small concrete building that may once have been an Orlit A stands in one corner of the compound. Its height has been increased with one coarse of breezeblocks with a locked door at one end and a new roof. It is pained orange but some original green paint is visible beneath this. There is a modern prefabricated building within the compound with several radio masts attached to it. The building is locked. An amateur radio club probably owns the site.
