On north side of track to Borough Farm in the front garden of a house, 200 yards east of Broomers Hill Lane.
LOCKED The post compound has now been incorporated into the front harden of a house. The surrounding land has been built up level with the top of the hatch which is still accessible. It is not know if the vent shaft and FSM and BPI pipes have been removed or buried. The post is flooded to a depth of about 18" a high water mark above the current water level indicates the level of water fluctuates. The table, shelf and cupboard remain together with copper straps indicating this was a master post, light, BPI mount and wiring. It was not possible to enter the room to see if anything else remained in the cupboard.
Opened in 1968 and closed in 1991.
There appears to be Hydrogen Cyanide inside. This post should not be entered under any circumstances without full safety checks and PPE.
After speaking with the landowner, the land around the surface features has in fact not been built up, rather all surface features have been reduced back down to ground level. The owner spoke about how the post had a particularly tall compound around it and that years ago they demolished it and all of the surface features of the post as it obstructed their view of the surrounding countryside, the post was never fully demolished as they saw no need to do so. Today the water level inside the post fluctuates slightly but never seems to become too deep. Entry to this post is extremely hazardous due to high levels of Hydrogen sulphide gas released when moving through the water. This appears to have been caused by a rug carpet decaying underwater. One item remaining inside the post being a weather vane indicates that this was a metar A Post. Many of the salvageable features of this post have now been removed and put towards a post restoration.
