At the first inspection the hatch was sealed by cementing two short scaffold poles into the ground and welding a third pole across the two. It was opened in October 2000 as the post was advertised for sale bu auction. Internally is clean and dry with twin bunks and a single bed, 3 mattresses, table, shelf, cupboard, large splint, GPO junction boxes and wiring, some other wiring. The timer still works. The post failed to reach its reserve price and has been taken off the market. It has been locked again with an interpretation board placed nearby.
