Date opened April 1965
Date closed September 1991
Location 30 yards south of the perimeter of Fereneze Golf Course boundary wall. Best access is a gap in houses in Graham Street. (300 yards up steep path)
Description SEALED The site is overgrown but all surface features remain intact with the beige paint flaking badly. A metal dome on the ventilation shaft indicates this was a master post. The ventilation louvres have been replaced and are unusually large. A replacement Torlift hatch has been
fitted this is locked but can be opened with a Torlift key or a large screwdriver. Internally the post is a mess but much remains including: table, shelf, cupboard, twin bunks with mattresses, 8 jerry cans (some full), two folding wooden chairs, 2 other chairs, ROC training manual, floor
standing Dexion rack, three pairs of Wellington boots, 2 plastic bowls, battery box, BT junction box (detached) and wiring, paper rack, pipe for aerial pump, light, teapot, papers/posters, long shelf on wall, cleaning materials, 2 duffle coats, tins of food, crockery, candle holder and a
bracket on the ladder for storing the aerial mast. When visited in February 2005 the post had been severely damaged by fire internally. When visited in 2007 the hatch had been welded.
