On a low mound in a square compound 75 yards west of a farm access road that runs north from an un-named minor road.
LOCKED All surface features remain intact but the post has been damaged with the top of the ventilation shaft and the louvers removed. The louvers on the ventilation shaft adjacent to the access shaft are intact and painted white as is the GZI mount. The rest of the surface features are painted dark green with some flaking. That hatch is locked but can be opened with a Scottish ‘T’ bar key. Internally the post is in good condition with many artifacts remaining including table, shelf, cupboard, fire blanket in its box, 2 plastic chairs, 1 (original) folding canvas chair, light, WB1401 speech receiver with WB1410 filter unit, BT junction boxes and wiring, 3 cluster maps, stationery, kitchen utensils, rain cape, saucepan, plastic bowl, BPI mount, wire brush, wall mounted OS map showing the locations of other posts in the area, broom, pick (no handle) and paint pots. The timer is unusually mounted beside the battery fuse box. There is a false wooden floor which is now rotten and a wooden shelf in the toilet recess.
