    Arrow Gilsland ROC Post ( Northumberland ) July 2011

    Gilsland ROC Post is totally stripped with only the Cupboard, a bucket, a mat and a poster on the wall remain.
    Situated in Gilsland 1km north from the A69. Also can be seen from the A69 easily.
    Easy access via a minor road.
    Has not got a T-bar Mechanism anymore and could not close properly and was kept shut by two rocks and a peice of Blue rope running through the Hasp holes and over the hatch and tied in a easy to untie knot.
    the Sump was Filled with water but no water overflowing the Sump as of yet.

    The Compound Well looked after as grass as been kept cut nice and short.

    The foot and mouth stamp didn't bother me really, maybe i was too young to remember how bad the foot and mouth event was even though i remember watching a massive hill of cows being burnt :0.. when did you go there?
