    Hey 28DL, first time poster here from Longridge, up in Lancashire.
    Thought I'd make my way to my local ROC post today after reading a ton of threads on here.

    Situated just next to a golf course and about 5 minutes drive from Longridge.

    I actually spoke to the owner, who plans to renovate the post into an amateur radio station, he's already a VHF antenna up and plans to have a 40m dipole soon. A lot of the earth has been dug away to make a more friendly entrance.

    Quite a small space, with obvious works going on, still quite interesting

    An old first aid notice, a bit damp

    Friendly welcome sign as well, with barely noticeable 28DL scrawled across the top

    Battery switch looking thing here

    Last two pictures here are the original entrance hatch and what I can only assume is the control for the shutters on the surface


    The owner told me they used pinhole cameras on the surface to take measurements of a nuclear blast if it happened.

    Good to see this one again, looking slightly different since I was last there though!
    Nice report.

    Cheers mate

    Yeah big plans for this one, the owner wants to open up that whole area with the digger in and make it look like a hobbit hole

    That was a pump for getting the water from the sump at the bottom of the ladders. I visited this post in 2015 and didn't notice any digging work going on.
