Post Name CULFORD
OS Grid Reference TL84987084
County Suffolk
Date opened July 1960
Date closed October 1968
Location On the West side of farm track 50 yards south of Culford Road.
Description The post is intact but was covered in soil about 1978 to stop children playing in it. With the owners position (the late Roy Stenett), the site was excavated and the hatch was found at a depth of 15" and was open. The ladder is missing so access was gained using an electron caving ladder. Internally the post is a mess with the floor littered with rubble and rubbish. The table and shelf are smashed and the cupboard is lying on its face. One ventilation louvre also lies on the floor. The post was built back to front. The hatch has now been covered over again to prevent further access.

The aircraft post (now demolished) was on the opposite side of the farm track.
