    The post is located in a small compound amongst thick bramble, near some tennis courts.

    The hatch is locked and can be opened with a T-bar key.

    The hatch is rusty however the mechanism and counter-balance weight are in good order.

    The monitoring room is a mess with rubbish scattered over the floor, nevertheless the bunker appears to be structurally sound.

    You can use an English T-bar key for ROC bunkers, although they are hard to get hold of. You can create a makeshift one out of some thick welding rod or a wire coat-hanger, which will turn a lock that's not too stiff. The lock on this particular post is not stiff & should turn without a problem.
