Description WELDED The compound fencing is high with barbed wire on top and the gate is locked and secure. All surface features remain intact with some flaking of the green paint. A dome on the ventilation shaft indicates this was a master post. The hatch is welded. When visited the hatch was locked, the owner cut the locks off for the inspection. Much remained including the table, shelf, cupboard, short wall shelf, two mattresses, two plastic chairs, coax cable, BT junction box and wiring, Tele-Talk, WB1401 carrier receiver with WB1410 filter unit, cluster map, tool board, papers, wire brush, headphones and the airial mast pump.
