    What better way to get rid of a hangover than a wander in the Herfordshire countryside & a visit to a local ROC post..but it was a disapointment to find it in such a bad state compared to the report found on Subbrits site here
    Unfortunally it's been totaly trashed, the furniture that was left in there has been smashed to pieces. I did have a sift through it all to see if there was anything worth saving but unfortunally it's all either been knicked to smashed.
    So heres a few pictures from the site and of the small tower next to it.

    Well done mate, and thanks for sharing this.

    The tower is known as an 'orlit post'. They were the original look-out posts for the ROC in the early 50s. The one you saw today is in exceptional condition.
