Visited this evening with Zimbob.

After not being able to find this in the summer I assumed it had be demolished in the construction of the neighbouring water board compund, but we had a recce en-route to Poolewe a couple of weeks ago and found her, tucked in a very overgrown compound with the remains of a metal gate and a small wooden footbridge. Access in summer without machete or chainsaw would be nigh on impossible. I have few exterior shots due to it being REALLY dark.

This post was closed in 1991. It is locked on the T-bar, which we do not have, but a little on-site improvisation saved the day (or night:p)

Interesting hand written weather data chart on a small piece of ply hanging from ladder.

Three mattresses (still wrapped in their original paper. A canvas sheet with cotton ties along each side (stretcher?) and a metal splint. We tidied up a little:D

First aid kit contents (No first aid kit!)

Map of local ROC posts, many now gone, or locked.

Rubber gloves still in bag, and harder than a quadratic equation!

Vanity?

That explains it!

A more modern looking timer

Hand pump, not working:mad:

Sadly the sump was full and with the pump not working (we tried for ages, but the water level didn't drop) It is only a matter of time before that beautiful carpet is destroyed. Seriously though, this is a very clean and tidy post, given its very secluded location, will remain so- as long as the water does not get it first.

Hope you enjoy:thumb
