    Built for the closure of the first Folkestone post in the 1960's, this one was closed in 1992 as a Master Post. The Subrit report says this was open in 2001, but it is now firmly locked.

    Subrit report, so you can see what it looks like below ground.

    Well-appointed compound, note the kerbstones by the entrance. Gate is locked.

    Huge compound, fence is still intact. There's even hardstanding over the back

    FSM and BPI pipes

    Aerial earth straps on the ventilaton shaft

    Aerial mount and mains electricity connection on the access shaft. The aerial mount is the standard sort of TV aerial mount you'd get in Maplins. The electricity socket was originally screwed to the shaft. These aren't mentioned in the Subrit report, so they might be a recent addition. Radio ham perhaps? They don't look like they've been used in a while

    Water stopcock point at the back of the compound. Damp moss growing on it indicates it must be still live

    There's two of these earthrod connections at the back of the compound. They could have been used for the post aerial, but are quite close together.

    Lots of snails under the cover
