Structures
Half a mile to the south west at NX697503 there is an Orlit A on a hilltop close to a communications mast. There are some compound fence posts lying on the ground around it and some erosion of the soil beneath it. There is a short section of metal ladder identical to an underground post ladder inside, the remaining section is the length that would protrude above the surface in an underground post. This could indicate a demolished underground post at this site although none is listed in official records.
