I recently visited the Whittlesey ROC post. I found out about this place from another users post (Frizman). I knew what to expect but was somehow still disappointed.

Here you can see the location of the shaft to the rooms below - on farming land

Closer picture of the shaft, you can clearly see it's not in the best of conditions

You can see here that the ladder has been sealed shut with a steel plate, tried looking past it but could see nothing more than darkness

I noticed that the hinge/lock for the missing hatch has been cut, I have no idea why, any ideas?

Some kind of air vent?

I have no idea what this is, does anyone else know?

Another shot of the location - hidden beneath a field behind a housing estate

Thanks for looking through it all. If anyone has any further information or images from before the shaft was sealed it would be appreciated.

Nice report, interesting to see the post sealed from the ladder rather than the top. Aside from the concrete air vent, the other surface feature is a Fixed Survey Meter.

The Subterranea Britannica website has some photos of the inside here: WHITTLESEY Cambridgeshire

There is a better one not too far away.. I was right near this one only last night and was wondering if anyone had managed to remove the metal plate. Although according to Subbrit theres nothing much left down there.
