After seeing the posts on here of the other ROC Posts and been a bit of a ROC Virgin I thought I would look into this a little bit more and try and visit a post for myself.
This is the little bit of history I know on this particular post.
“The post was originally closed in 1968 but was reopened shortly after in 1976 (I was 3 then ) when the nearby post of Blean closed.�
The post itself is in amazing condition (Apart from the massive cob web as you enter ) and I feel that this is due to the fact that the post is locked and on private land within close range of at least 3 houses.
Not knowing too much about the exact location of the post I knocked on the first door I came to and hit the Jackpot. I was shown the exterior first then asked to comeback in half an hour so as the land owner could unlock the site and try to open the rusty hatch. Luckily for me he did and I was shown into the post by the landowners son who was very helpful. Thanks goes to the landowner and his family for offering to show me the post.
Anyway time for the pics
On our way up to a rally on the Epynt Ranges (yeah, the one with the Toyota Sunbeam crash - we saw it happen and actually helped the driver (Darren Pool) out of the car), Hood_mad spotted this ROC post up on a small rise on the outskirts of Sennybridge.
We parked the evo up and wandered over to take a look. It was quite trashed, the lid looks secure (but isn't) and there was a bit of water on the floor.
This time, it was just Hood_mad and myself.

FSM shaft & ventilation
Down the hatch.
Not much there, but another one ticked off the list.
Visited with hood_mad and guided round by captain slow.
I've wanted to do this for ages because it's basically right on my doorstep.
The history has been done many times before, so I'll just add my photos to the list.
The main room.
Lock for vent.
Thanks to CS for showing us around.
