    Arrow Ashover ROC Post - (Derbyshire Group) - August 2010

    Looking roughly south-east, trig marker in the background.

    I think this was some sort of addition later by radio enthusiasts for mounting an aeriel.


    Dome at top of pic is the mount for the Ground Zero Indicator


    Facing west towards the round column in the centre of pic. This has details on top regarding direction & distances of various landmarks.


    The view south.


    More on my Flickr....Cheers.

    You are right saying it is a Master Post, but the dome you are talking about is on every post. That is the mount for the Ground Zero Indicator.

    The dome subbrit mentions is on the side of the vent shaft, visable in your first picture.
