    Arrow Coltishall ROC Post - (Norfolk Group) - May 2011

    Ok people, go easy on me as this is my first explore, hopefully many more to come!!

    After doing the grass and washing up i had a couple of hours to spare so went for a ride!

    I done my research as to the location of the post and made my way up a dirt track.



    The orlit in an ok condition



    The hatch was already open on my arrival



    Looking down



    The BPI mount



    Air vent



    The hatch, again.



    The water tower owned by Anglian Water



    The orlit



    The toilet



    The beds in an ok condition



    BPI internal



    Beds



    Cupboards



    Pump



    The shoe



    The pump



    Looking up



    And again



    Drain from the sump??



    Not sure????



    Orlit inside



    And again



    The views in the orlit were great



    Could of stayed up there all day!!!



    The urban exploration vehicle, not built for going up dirt tracks!!!



    The dirt track



    Yes thats me, the poser!!!



    I have not really got the hang of putting comments with my pictures but they speak for themselves.
    The post was bone dry and the hatch was already open when i arrived.
    The orlit was in good condition and i took some of the photos from the top.
    Inside as you can see were the bunk bed and single bed, a chemical toilet, a cupboard, a can of lynx, a boot, and a dead rabbit, which i stood on!!
    Also you can probably see my urban exploration vehicle, which was not built for riding up dirt tracks.
    The water tower is owned by anglian water, and the post was in a seperate fenced off compound, which looks ideal for a restoration.
    Your comments and thoughts appreciated, and if anyone is up for an explore soon, give me a shout, up for some more of this!!!.

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice one, not bad for a 68 closure, strangely theres just a non grilled manhole cover over the sump.

    An idea maybe to put a space between the pics

    This looks like a tidy little site Southy,
    as Krypton said, it may be an idea to put a space between the pictures as they are then easier to see and possibly number the pictures as its then easier to identify and make a point about an image.

    Love the shots up towards the hatch, the concrete to clear blue sky is amazing!

    Great first report and write up!
    Made a 68 interesting
    The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.

    Good first report! To answer your question the mount on this picture: http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/IMG_1726.jpg

    Is called a GZI or ground zero indicator, used for measuring the size of the nuclear bomb blast, it would be recorded onto photographic paper then sone poor bugger would have to come up and fetch and replace the results a minute after the bomb went off!

    A GZI looks like this: (see link for picture!)
