    Burgh-on-Bain ROC Monitoring Post Lincolnshire - May - 2014

    Going for a ride in the Wolds took us to the Monitoring Post at Burgh on Bain. This post is set into a barrow which is an ancient trackway. On first impressions it just looks like a mound and can overlooked very easily.
    On entering the site through the field. There is trap door at the top which you open, and a ladder you climb down. Bring a torch as its pitch black without 1. This site is very small as it's only a single room underground. The Monitoring post is in poor condition with the paint peeling off the roof and the walls. It's not a mind blowing site but worth looking at a small bit of history if you are in passing on the Lincolnshire Wolds.

    Brief History
    Burgh-on-Bain ROC Monitoring Post opened in 1959 and closed in september 1991.
    The barrow which measures 3 metres high with a circumference of 20 metres has been put to an alternate use during this century, in the late 1950's it served as a Royal Observer Corps early warning post and the building of this post may have increased the height of the barrow somewhat. The post closed in 1991 but a concrete bunker and cold-war paraphernalia still remain to be seen.

    That's quite nasty, looks wet. I have seen worse though. The Orlit B looks to be in good nick though.

    Yes its not too bad with lighting, you can see where you are inside. Its does not look very inviting but worth a visit if you are in the area. Its damp inside, I would not want to spend the night there.

    They are more correctly called Monitoring Posts ExpoLight than Listening Posts as they monitored Nuclear Fallout (if we ever had any that is)

    Pretty well trashed & fire damaged but of interest none the less.

    The Orlit Post on the surface predates the underground post, and were used in WW2 to spot & report enemy aircraft.
