    Default Middleton Stoney ROC Post - Oxfordshire - July 2008


    As the weather was not that great today i thought i would do a close to home and Dryish explore. Middleton Stoney ROC post is 5 miles away from where i live but never knew it was there until doing a search last night so i thought i would pop along to take alook.

    The site is on a mound in a small square compound on the East side of an un-named minor road, 200 yards North of Bicester road (B4030).

    The post is unlocked and in a real mess, looks like local youths have been using it as a place to hang out, its been ripped to shreds, rubbish, candles and grafiti everywhere. Its a real shame :(

    Anyway worth a visit heres some pictures








































    Like i said its a shame its been so damaged compared to what it was like in 1998 when it was visited by subbrit - MIDDLETON STONEY ROC POST

    Well done for getting out there mate, it's more than I did this weekend!

    That particular post was always likely to be wrecked. It's close to a road so access is easy, it's not screened by vegetation and it's just down the road from Bicester which I'm sure UKMayhem will agree is a bit of a chav town in places. It was chav'd long before forums like this one started featuring ROC posts.

    It's what you get when the local council is bent as the proverbial 3 pound coin.

    Back in the '90s the council gave loads of planning consent toloads of rich property developers for huge estates but didn't give any for any facilities. So we've got loads of people living there and their kids are growing up with nothing to do. No cinema, no bowling alley, no nothing, not even the temple of chav-dom, McDonalds. That kind of crap planning doesn't happen without a little oil in the wheels.

    I guess I can't particularly blame the chavs for growing up feral in Bicester because it's not their fault there's nothing else there for them to do. Oh, I forgot - we've got a designer label outlet village, whoop-de-doo!


    I think RAF Bicester's safe. Even chavs develop a sense of which type of policemen will give them a kicking and which won't when they grow up in a garrison town.

    As everyone has said, very sad. There wasn't much in it when I saw it in 98 but it was clean and tidy and a few yerars later it hadn't changed.

    The Sub Brit web site has been blamed in the past for posts geting trashed but if I believed that I would have removed the database. It probably leads to posts getting visited by responsible enthusiasts which is a good thing but I dodn't belive the morons who do that kind of damage have the intelligence or interest to find the database, find the post on it, go and find it on the ground and then trash it so I dodn't think the internet is to blame (there will of course be exceptions).

    I am sure it is just local word of mouth and local children doing what local children often do these days. I used to trespass all the time as a kid, I can remember riding round on the sprinklers at the local sewage works which was great fun but we never damaged anything, that's the different with the youth of today (not all of them of course).

    In 1998 the post had only been closed 7 years, now it''s been closed 17 years, it's obvious that a lot more local people will have discovered it in the last 10 years. Most of the early closure posts (1968) that I visited were in poor internal condition because they has been derelict for 30 years (now 40 years)

    Sorry to rant but it annoys me to see that unnecessary vandalism.

    Nick
