Location In a small secure overgrown compound at the end of a line of telegraph poles 50 yards inside the perimeter fence of the Pirbright Ranges (North of Colony Gate). 150 yards East of The Maultway (B3015). Restricted MOD site - no public access.
Description LOCKED All surface features remain intact with the green paint in good condition. Internally much remains including all the BT equipment (WT WB1401 speech receiver, filter unit, switching boxes, Tele-talk), folding table and shelf, cupboard, siren box, fire blanket, wiring, papers, post diary, visitors log, kitchen utensils, maps, mattresses, blankets, folding chair, dart board and other small items. MOD offered to demolish the post after stand-down but the range officer Major Bob Hutchings (who arranged this inspection) decided to retain the post as its position in a wooded area would not effect the operation of the ranges.
