At the end of a line of telegraph poles in a small heavily overgrown rectangular compound on a field boundary, 120 yards along path east of Keysoe Road.
OPEN All surface features remain intact with some flaking of the light green paint. There are no padlocks but the internal lock has seized and cannot be opened with the ’T’ bar key. When visited in 1998 and 2000 the hatch was locked. It is now open but the post is flooded to within two feet of the top of the shaft.
A two storey brick aircraft post stands in an overgrown area outside the east side of the compound. It is 12’ X 6’ with a window in the lower floor. The upper floor has an open section (7’ X 6’) lined with plywood but the wooden steps up to it have gone. The lower ‘crew room’ (5’ X 6’) has a sloping wooden roof. Inside there is one bed frame from the underground post and a ventilation louvre. There is a 10’ X 10’ wooden hut alongside that has an old Electrolux fridge and a gas heater in it. The wall are covered with pictures of aircraft.
Opened in 1964 and closed in 1991.
