Went on a quick explore out to find a few R.O.C Posts first one was welded shut but the second was open for us to look inside, theres a video of our finds of course and a small written run down below. just sorting out some photos to post up of both now as-well.

Church Greasley - welded shut and locked, signs of attempted break ins more than likely from kids but far from anyone getting in there, painted hatch with close-by housing my guess is its been shut and welded as some form of time capsule by locals that keep an eye on it. vent and pipework still remain on top.

Melbourne - This was the r.o.c post we got trapped inside if anyone remembers that from earlier on this year (video is on our youtube channel and on a thread in here somewhere, located in overgrown bush line, damp inside with overflowing drainage, not too bad but needs a proper pump out, few items remaining inside some original like rubber matts and wooden struts for table with some equipment housing brackets etc and then a few add-ons from over the years and of course plenty of rubbish, vent and pipework still standing above ground with parts of a compound fence remaining. clasps are freely moving on hatch and if left facing upwards can fall back onto themselves trapping you inside so best to cable tie them back (for full understanding on what we mean and the clasp type on this hatch again check the video on our page)

Church Gresley Post is certainly no time capsule, it was trashed and burnt by locals about 20 years ago. Some people I know started restoring it years ago (hence the newer paintwork), but they had locals constantly breaking in so they abandoned the project :(
