    A few weeks back in the Tameside advertiser, there was a small article about the Hyde ROC and how some "enthusiasts" had pumped it :

    Then this week, a man has written in explaining the ROC. He mentions that he was once a member of the ROC and enlightens the public a bit about the post :

    Just thought this might be of interest to a few people, sorry i dont have a scanner atm :(

    Can you post some larger images up, I can't read anything in the second one.

    Major error in the first report there... the posts were not manned around the clock. They were manned infrequently at best.

    to be honest I wish they would just keep their bloody noses out - I'm sure that it is no coincidence that the one break in we have had at the post was just after the first piece was in the paper.
    We purposely DIDN'T tell any newspapers etc about the post because it wasn't secure and we wanted to get it locked properly before there was any publicity - then this bozo, who has nothing to do with the restoration, goes and tells the paper so he can have his glory moment. What the Hell has it got to do with him? idiot!

    I have no idea who he is tbh! that is what annoys me - he's gone to the papers when he doesn't know what he is talking about and told them there is a BUNKER on the top of Werneth low - now to be fair if I was a chav from around there and I found out about that - I can't believe for a minute that one of them read it - they don't read - then I would want to go and check it out too. It made it out to be a lot more interesting than it actually is! Thankfully they didn't set it on firs and there was nothing left inside for them to wreck....but if this pillock had just kept his nose out, then we wouldn't have had the big rush to try and get the place more secure again after they broke in. Hardly anyone knew about the place and that is how we wanted to keep it for the time being

    I totally agree Smurf. Just some randomer trying to grab some publicity that has no relevance to him whatsoever.

    OT, I resized em and seems to be blurry and my cam has no battery left at the mo. I'll go Tesco's tomorow and get some batt's and take some more :thumb

    Here's a scan of the article - to be honest I'm less pissed off about this one - at least this is written by and EX ROC Observer, he doesn't mention the post much but just points out some of the crap the other guy got wrong. Still it's more publicity and means I'm gonna have to try and keep any eye on the post as much as poss...

    Hi!

    I've just recently seen the posts about the Hyde ROC - and then spotted the article in this weeks Advertiser. Went up to have a look at the post the other night - I had seen it before, but hadn't thought about what it could be.

    I only live in Hyde, and a bit new on here, but could keep an eye on it when I pass - if that's not stepping on toes.

    MsK
