    Opened: 1961

    Closed: September 1991

    Visited with Tankman

    This post has been demolished.
    The post was situated next to the Rollright stones and in the same field as the Kings stone, although the post has been demolished the top part of the acsess shaft and the fence posts have been dumped in the hedgerow nearby. Long Compton was a master post and we beleive it to have been in Coventry Group.

    What remains of the shaft

    A metal vent slat is still fitted

    Fence post in the bushes

    Telepgraph pole that served the post



    From some contacts Tankman has heard that the land owner would like to excavate the post.
    Waiting for a war that never happened....

    Its a weird location, where this post was sited around an ancient monument the Rollright Stones Although the views are unquestionable in regards to getting a perfect reading for an A-bomb attack!

    After getting attacked by stinging nettles and brambles! "Tankman" flattened the undergrowth to get this stunning picture of the Entrance shaft/turret

    The Kings Stone looking towards where the post originally was! The overgrown clump in the distance.

    The view from where the GZI would have been! Un-interupted views for taking an A-bomb reading
