    Default Saltend ROC Post - Yorkshire Group - April 2016


    Have seen this site a number of time since I was a kid but never had the opportunity to get in.
    Turns out a local farmer I know owns it and has the keys.
    He and his son have spent some time refurbishing it back to how it was...there's still a ways to go though.
    Post was completely dry.

    It's nice to see someone wanting to restore a ROC post. Did you get any more pictures of the room inside?

    I have a few more that'll I'll. Will also check what was taken out as part of the restoration. All of the polystyrene tiles were apparently fire damaged.

    I love roc posts and its nice to see this one getting a restore - there magical things and until you have been in one you dont know what your missing.
    Its nice that you saw this as a kid and actually went in with your own kids - kind of a full circle.
    Thanks for sharing.
