OS Grid Reference SO73469318
County Shropshire
Date opened May 1961
Date closed October 1968
Location On mound 50 yards east of A454
Description OPEN All surface features remain intact but in poor condition although much of the green paint remains. There is damage to both ventilations shafts and all the ventilation louvres are missing. The hatch detached and is to be found at the bottom of the shaft with the top of the shaft now covered with a sheet of steel. Internally the post is strewn with rubbish and flooded to a depth of four inches. The walls have been painted red and blue, persuadably by local children. The only remaining furniture is two single beds with the BPI mount still in place. The two internal doors are missing. Considering the close proximity of a housing estate it is surprising this post is still open.
