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 :lol: ) when the nearby post of Blean closed.�

The post itself is in amazing condition (Apart from the massive cob web as you enter :spider: ) 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
