Hi all.

Had a busy morning and visited two local ROC posts.
First stop was Middleton ROC Post - it's already been covered on UE HERE.

Then on to Swaffham ROC Post - not yet covered on UE so my chance at a first report!! :)

Located in the middle of an in-use farm field:

Unlocked - it was easy to open the hatch:

Down the hatch - first thing to note was the abundance of snails!

Looking up from the bottom of the shaft:

The bog:

Looking back to the entrance from inside the post:

Not much left inside - bunks and an empty cupboard (and of course loads of snails):

Couple of batteries too:

Back up to the surface and the pillbox with it's aircraft observation tower:

Finally a shot of hay-stacks being loaded on to trucks - they were working on the other side of the field and didn't seem bothered by my presence:

That's one of Swaffham's two wind generators in the background by the way.

A nice morning out and my two nearest ROC Posts explored - time for a rest i think.
