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.

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.

I went back to this post and the owner has indeed dug out the end of it.

Never seen a converted ROC before. That's new to me. Nice to see the landowner getting creative rather than leaving it to get torched like many other ROC posts thesedays.

Yeah. Unfortunately unless these are heavily secured or appear to be in regular use they get broken into and destroyed.
Iv never been inside this one but have been to a couple that have been in decent condition on my original visit then on a return visit vandalised or burned.
