Geocache Description:

You are looking for a small clip lock box. You do not have to descend into the bunker to retrieve the cache.



The cache is located near to a decommissioned Royal Observer Corps observation post, one of over a 1000 that were constructed during the Cold War. For more information on the Royal Observer Corps and these posts Click Here

On last inspection, the post was unlocked. The construction appears to be sound, but there were very little of the original features left inside, other than a cupboard and some of the original photographic paper.
(04.09.11 - Current status: Owners have locked the entrance hatch with padlock and chain)

Please be aware though, that this post, unlike some others that caches have been placed near or in, is actually now on private property. The landowner can see the post from their house. If you want to take a look inside, it would be polite to ask them first. Their house is the first one on the same side of the road as the post, less than half a mile west from it. They were happy to let xJammmzy and I descend to take photos when we asked.

If you only want to do the cache, or take photos of the outside of the post from the road side of the gate, there is no need to bother the owners.

Long term parking is tricky due to the narrow lanes, but if you are just doing a quick cache and dash then there is enough room to pull in beside the gate to the entrance of the post compound.
