This ones a 1991 closure, located on a small hill with all original access from the road long gone. This one was always locked in previous years, however it is now unlocked and the hatch is completely detached. Internally it is in very good condition, with siren crate, maps, ration box, tool board, and numerous other items remaining. It also had an interesting home made fan on the vent, along with the associated control panel.

This one had the security plate on the fsm pipe as well so you couldn't even cam it. And it had guard cows....

Goldi87 - was this damp ? It looks like there are duckboards in the photo and the fan might have been to shift the damp.

I recognise that post. I should do, I served there in the 1980’s and was responsible for the fan and the charging instrument panel made mostly from GEC’s finest components . Two reasons for the modifications. The fan which came out of a car heater was there to ensure a quick air change and contrary to what you may think, it did get a bit stuffy down there at times. Also some folk used to smoke so an air change was desirable. We had a second battery to run the fan so as not to drain the main post battery. We also found that the official method of charging the battery was a pain to say the least so we fitted a plug at the top of the shaft with a fly lead on the generator. The panel allowed us to switch between batteries and to monitor the charge rate., and control the fan. All highly unofficial and frowned on by group, but it seems it remained until the end. In earlier years before my time, the post did suffer from flooding and was re excavated and re tanked. It no longer flooded. Those tiles were missing from the ceiling from the mid 1980’s and were never replaced
