    Arrow Kirtlebridge ROC Post - (Dumfriesshire Group) - July 09

    1991 Closure

    Just of the M6, nearly in someones backgarden. This was a 5.45am trip to the post and my first encounter with a Scottish tbar mechanism. I took me a few mins to work out how to unlock them.

    Inside the post is ok but flooded. You have to balance on a very rusty paint tin to take the pictures. The water was just too minging to wade into at that time of the morning

    Not much remains inside, a poster and a few bits of paperwork is all.









    A close up of the Scottish tbar mechanism. A much more considered design that the normal UK version. It locks itself on closure which is probably why there are nice posts up that way.

    Under the radar, over the top

    that paint tin is quite scary to stand on!
    The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.

    Sad as it looks very damp down there. Is that the first post over the border? There is something strangely facsinating about the flooded ones though.
