    Visited with Gridnutter today.

    This is listed as demolished on Subbrit but a chance conversation made us realise that this Post might still be intact. We got in touch with our new friends from Severn Trent and they advised us that it was definitely still there and let us in to have a look. Big thanks to STW and to Griddy for the original contact.

    Highly secure in a compound within a compound. STW cut off the rusted original locks. Now all resecured with new locks.

    This is the 'Post Instrument' table which would have been originally used in the above ground aircraft post. There's no evidence of where that was now. There are various landmarks and distances highlighted on the map making it unique to this bunker.

    We were the first in since 1992 when BT visited to remove the WB1400 and comms equipment.
