Visited by Ojay, Diehardlove & Fazy_Uk.



Whilst in the area I asked D.H.L if there were local ROC posts, as I haven't experienced one yet. Within minutes we arrived here at Longcliffe where there is the usual underground ROC post, but also a second WW2 brick post further uphill, which having tried to find some history on it turns out that it's one of only 2 surviving examples left in the country.

Naturally we took a look at both of them.

The underground post has had it's hatch damaged, and also was slightly flooded at the entrance and quite trashed inside, however a number of items were still reasonably intact:

Bunkbeds, Toilet, paperwork, desk, chair, cannisters, partial telecoms etc..
