    Arrow Allonby ROC Post ( Cumbria Group ) July 2011

    Allonby ROC Post is located in a nice area overlooking the sea. It's got easy access to it via a public footpath that runs a few yards away from it.

    We weren't expecting much when we went because Subbrit said it was locked on the Original Padlocks, and it was. The padlocks were still there and the Keyhole was filled with rubble , Thats a shame because if it has the original Padlocks on not many people may of entered it or tried to enter it

    Air vent is badly damaged and the FSM pipe has a rust hole in the side of it, well camouflaged into the hedge.

    But overall it's in a good condition except the concrete around the hatch was cracking and the step was cracking as well. Inside is probably flooded a little due to the Air vent being destroyed.

    Hahaha, yeah, it was funny coz when we entered the field it was like in the corner and it was staring at us and then while we were looking at the post it walked into our exit path, and was staring at us for our whole journey back, it would if been creepy if there was more than 1.

    I went to this one after my trip to Scotland, did you park near the sign that says 'Allonby'? If you did, it had a funny tag line, I will try and find the pic at home, it kind of sums up the area lol

    here you go...



    Some of mine from the post, what interested me was the post office and BT posts just down the hill, do you reckon they were for the ROC post?

    This was about 3 meters from the post...
