What are current sensible values for an ROC post, in secure dry, refurbished condition?

10 years ago they went for silly money.

Is there a online reference of guide prices?

Quite a few went on first release for very little - one even for fifty quid. I put in a bid of a rather more reasonable sum for the one at Worth Matravers and cunningly volunteered as the key-holder to allow other prospective buyers to see it. I did not get it, although I knew no-one else had inspected it and (since no-one had called for the key), I was a bit surprised.
I later discovered that the mobile operators had bought up a lot of them, sight unseen, in case they found them handy later on.

I had also heard about telecom operators snapping up a few.

Makes sense, small amount of land that could accommodate a transmitter if needed.

location location location.........they are just concrete,the only thing that can alter price would be location
Typical asking prices seem to be around £15 - £20k for good ones in OK locations and most of those were bought around 5-8 years ago for £6-£10k, so not a bad investment if you get the asking price.
Big problem is security - it's only an interesting concrete box (IMHO) if there are some remains of the original ROC useage. It only takes one idiot breaking in and torching it to make if a very uninteresting, dangerous and (very expensive) concrete box.
