    Visited with Gridnutter & Bobblehead.

    Gridnutter should take the praise for getting us access to this post. It is in a secure Severn Trent compound, and through a few useful contacts we had access. Post is securely locked on both t-bar and padlocked and is located in very secure STW compound.

    Curiously even though this had the master post dome on the vent shaft, it didnt have any of the earthing straps or connections for the radio.

    Internally much remained, with cloud posters, canvas chairs and jerry cans aswell as maps, cutlery and other ROC goodies.

    Really good to tick this one off the list, and was good to meet up with two fellow ROC fans off here. Nice to meet you guys :thumb.

    So, a quick explore, few photo's and a quick pint in the local pub :eek:

    anyway...pics.

    Aha, we wondered what you were doing down there Turk - you just can't help tidying up !!

    Big thanks to Griddy for getting access and to the 2 STW guys - nice one fellas.

    Here's a few more photos

    We took off the 'top hat' cover only to find no connection points. There was also no earthing or radio cabling inside - maybe it was built as a radio post but then they had second thoughts ?

    This is what it should have looked like...

    I'm sure Griddy's got some good pictures to post as well
