    Default Coltishall R.O.C Post and Orlit. Norfolk.


    I had a trip out into Broadland this avo to this lovely little Post at Coltishall near Wroxham The post is a 1968 closure and is clean inside an not flooded. It was my first explore down an R.O.C Post but glad to say after plucking up the courage I finally got down there...The Orlit.. I think nearby and in good condition. There were some Big Ass Spiders under the hatch, bloody good job I aint an Arachnophobe! Inside the Orlit... All in all a good little explore even with a bit of a push from Badoosh who gave me a bell and some encouragement! Cheers for thhat Mate!:) Cannot wait to do another one now as I know I can fit down the shaft!.

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    When I first got my feet into the shaft I was shit scared to be honest but I thought that I had just driven 20 miles and it would be stupid to wimp out.I am 17 stone and built like brick shithouse and I made it down comfortably in the end! dont let it stop you Swede!:)
