History

This roc post opened in 1965 and closed in 1991, from what i can find it was a master post.


The explore

So i was out riding my bike as it was a lovely day so i just cycled and cycled, before i knew it i was lost so stopped to check on my map where i was. I looked upon this field and noticed this green brick thing just there in the field. I guessed what it was so i went and had a look. I saw that someone has put a padlock on it so assumed that it was locked. I had a look and noticed that the hinges wasn't attached so i tried the lid and it opened.

It was only a quick visit but worth going down and i enjoyed thinking about the history of these places and what they was here for.


Thanks for looking
