Hood_mad saw this one on one of his drives and rang Dangerous Dave (BB) and Me to meet him there. I managed to trace the location to this report from subbrit.

An Orlit B stands next to the road with communications aerials mounted near the side of the building. It houses equipment for an amateur radio repeater station which is still in use. The front main entrance is bricked up, but if you climb up to the top, you will find another door hidden from view, which is padlocked shut and also a ladder.

Basically a standard ROC post, built in 1960 and closed in 1968, it has still got its original twin wire telephone line.

Upon descent, Dave found that there was more water in the post than was reported on subbrit. :lol: :lol: just under rigger boot depth actually so he had to move very very slowly.

Just a quick explore on a small site. I must have walked/drove past this post hundreds of times between pembroke dock and tenby.

Cheers for looking,

J.
