    Arrow Pavenham ROC Post - (Bedfordshire Group) - June 09

    Me and 'Bunkerkid' was driving around in the area after visiting the small but excellent Sywell Aviation Museum, 'A-Bomb' and dropped in on Pavenham ROC Post.

    Listed as a 91 closure, the post is easy to find, just off the road in its own still partially fenced compound.
    The once heavily overgrown compound has recently been cleared back along with heavily chopped hedgerow's. Carpet has been layed around the post to stop further growth

    At first glance it looks as if its being restored but this is further from the truth, a quick chat to the friendly neighbours, revealed that the owner is seeking planning permision to build a house on the site, with the post being demolished to make way

    Of interest: the telephone lines are still intact with BT having checked the telegraph pole only recently according to one of there tags on the pole.
    The BPI pipe has been sawn off and now lays on the hatch
    And an OS Trig post lays just inside the hedgerow

    The post is now padlocked, so only surface survey done



    Nicely chopped back hedgerow now gives clear views once again



    Some nice Axminster Carpet now lays around most of the post to stop the weeds growing back





    Telephone wires still intact! waiting for the call that never came



    Ordnance Survey Triangulation Post lays in the hedgerow.

    Nice one Guys, I visited here a month or so ago and it was locked but the key was sat on top of the hatch. I left the key with the bloke from the house accross the road.

    Did you see the foundations of what I guess were once gun emplacements in the field as well?

    The neighbour still has the key and would of let us down but since your visit, another padlock has been attached to the other side, so no entry
    He pointed out the foundations, and told us that there use to be landing lights there, for the approach to RAF Thurleigh Must admit they were pretty big foundations for landing lights?

    The wood where those B.17's came down is just to the East of them
