    Having dragged myself through a hedge backwards I found the hatch to be intact and suprisingly fluid in terms of opening...

    ...but I spotted a major difference between this and the other two posts I've visited. The key difference is that the one at Pavenham has the hatch counterweight on the right-hand side whereas those in Alderbury and Burgh-on-Bain are to your back which I found out much to my peril when I got a nasty bump on the head climbing up! The Pavenham solution seems much better and I’m not sure why they’re not all like that, perhaps they realised part way through the nationwide construction programme that they’d end up with injured officers up and down the country!

    The inside of the bunker was pretty clean although much more sparse than the previous two ROC posts I have visited, I was very impressed to see many individual artefacts still present including an intact mirror...

    The other items present included a Glitto canister...

    ...a tin of Luxol enamel paint...

    ... a Tankard Bitter ashtray...

    ...the Eltex chemical toilet...

    ...and various pieces of paper in good readable condition...

    ... although on a whole the place was a lot messier than on turkey's last visit. The most notable item missing was the bunk bed, this leaves quite a large space free at the back of the room but that at least gave me a better perspective and I got to see the room from a different angle than those normally available to me...
