Structures
An Orlit posts stand nearby on top of a brick tower which contains a lower room. As the post didn't open at this site until 1954 the brick structure is assumed to be contemporary with the Orlit. The Orlit is accessed by external iron steps which have rusted badly and barely climbable. The internal sliding door is still in place.
