    Default ROC Post, Grantham, Lincs, September 2015


    Won't do the history bit here as it's been done loads of times before. This post can be found on the outskirts of Grantham in open countryside. I've often gone past it but thought this time I'd pay it a bit of a visit so it didn't get too lonely.

    There's an ROC post in there somewhere!

    Ah, here she is! Sadly some numpty has bent the hatch brackets so it can't be closed and rain gets in.

    Down we go into the abyss:

    There's the pump:

    Quite a bit of stuff down here still but some dopper has started a fire down here:

    ...and those draws have seen better days too!

    Nice work Hughie. Shame some idiot started a fire in there.
