1. The History
Opened in May 1959, Swallow ROC post is hidden in a clump of bushes on the west side of Cuxwold Road on the brow of a hill. The post closed just over nine years later in October 1968 in the first ‘wave’ of closures. The area is now over-grown and access is a bit of a scramble. All surface features remain in-tact apart from the ventilation louvres which are missing. The hatch is open but the counter balance has been detached. The post itself is fairly clean but has been completely stripped and now all that remains are twin bunks and a single bed. An Orlit 'B' (an aircraft spotting post), apparently the only elevated Orlit remaining in Lincolnshire, is in the undergrowth nearby.

2. The Explore
Was en-route from an earlier explore and had this place pinned. Was passing by so thought I’d give it a look. Worth a half-an-hour of my time. The Orlit B is quite unique and even if the post is pretty stripped it is clean in a spartan kind of way. So not amazing but worth a look.

3. The Pictures

First up is the cute little Orlit B:
