    This observation post/HQ is half way up Tai Mo Shan mountain in Hong Kong's New Territories. We were took up here by my brother-in-law for the views and we stumbled across this photogenic lump of concrete. Subsequent research has shown that just up the road and over the hill from this place is an old abandoned military base. Hey ho...next time then.

    Anyhow, no history on this place so here's the pictures.

    What's this in the bushes?

    Inside it's pretty much empty and trashed...

    Bar the odd broken door...

    ...a trashed cooling fan:

    and rust light fitting:

    ...and of course the obligatory peeling paint:

    Ah, and let's not forget the table:

    And these strange concrete trigonometrical shapes on the roof:

    There's just something about paint-peeling concrete isn't there?
