Been meaning to visit this location for a while now, and as I was in the area I thought I may as well pop open the hatch and have a quick look inside (plus I hadn’t been to an ROC post up until now.

Not much available on the history of this post, but this post was first used in October 1960, and was decommissioned in September 2001. There is also a pill box type building next to the ROC post, but as the area has overgrown a bit over the years it was hard to get a decent picture of it (plus the inside was flooded and I didn’t fancy a swim). I didn't have any decent gear on me as wasn't planning on visiting, so the lighting's not great in the pictures.

The Medway Chavvies have gotten to it over the years as you can see form the pictures (compare them to the ones on subbrit that were taken in 2001 here - couldn’t find another report on here so this may be the first one).

This was put up for auction in March 2015, but looking at the state of it nobody bought it/they really don’t care about it (or they’ve only protected it with some threatening graffiti).

Anyway have some pictures of the remnants above ground...

This is the hatch above the ground

One of the vent shafts


Not totally sure about this one though


And here's the pill box type thing, there's a better picture on the link to subbrit at the top of the thread without all of the trees and bushes

And here's the inside of the ROC Post;

Pretty good ladder considering the circumstances

Some sort of valve at the bottom of the ladder

Dirty, damp & neglected room full of graffiti

This made me laugh

The inner vent shaft, probably had a grill over it at some point, but mindless vandalism strikes again

Is it even possible to do an explore without finding a pentagram?


Cool original red arrow on the floor


This room was possibly the bog, but had a big barrel in the way so the door wouldn't open - but I love a bit of nice original paint


Tried taking a panorama but it kind of failed, but if you're interested here it is.

So that's that, again apologies for the lighting in the pictures :thumb

Good one mate - could be cleaned up quite nicely. FWIW, most of the ROC Posts were stood down in 1991, with the ROC being fully stood down by 1995.

@Krypton cheers, it was looking relatively good 2 years ago from what I've seen in pictures, just down to Medway being Medway :/
Its now closer to the road than it used to be due to the dual carriageway upgrade. Being local I finally popped in sometime in 2014. Was clean but bare, it was stripped out and the furniture moved to Gravesend for their project.

Ohh that’s good, I thought it may have all been stolen - I’m assuming it’s going in that bunker in one of the car parks?
