Did a lovely job at cleaning the windscreen! Right so we go some ROC Posts and stuff to do today going to pick up number 1 fan oh yeah where are we now eeerrmm Southwest Berkshire folks! so number 1 Berkshire fan? right then lets put pedal to the metal as
they say in America do we need satnav do you recon? I think Wing it!! What is going on here folks that woman was asleep in her car last night? no give them a little honk mate! Didn’t look very happy! going fishing dont see why people fish Van temperatures not even got on the scale Turn off somewhere here dont we? right so yes we have been we are going to an ROC post located
every the artsy person
Bakshi destroy it just took it into the ocean folks does you know any for information
about this one was it shut down 91 yeah shut down early nineties I believe when
you know how it was demoys I don’t have a clue there’s no there’s no trace of
this so the actual monitoring room could
actually still be there the appear to be but I strongly believe that the farmer
basically when you can see you can you can really see the outline of it right
so if it’s not over growing impatient it’s now grown into it I can see the
outline of it so I don’t know if he’s out of digger and Bosch the roofing and
filled in right but we’ve got telegraph poles yes sir there has little things
going to walk up here so may well that might have been when that came home one
would have come off of here yeah see that’s how I found this place in the
first place because the details are a bit sketchy at the time right so I just
followed the telephone wires and the water tower down there what what’s our
yeah that’s yeah water tower that’s right there’s also a trick point in the
bush so new remains of any fences you know I suppose that’s the recent post isn’t it
you go maybe no maybe not but reinforce let’s definitely go I’m sitting it it’s
a shame what was it the quite clearly see see little ad outline or something
there yeah looks and it looks a bit dipped as well it does this where you
are there right in front of your face yeah see what I mean so I reckon the
roofs been busting it’s been backfilled nothing so was it like the mo DS to sort
of demolish them for the farmers or something like that if I think some
cases they did demolish him the mo d did before they gave it back something like
that I’m not sure so many there’s like 1500 posts in the UK fo new BRE do you
also have a theory though because from people are spoken to about this
particular post online we although it although this is a farmer’s field what
we’ve actually got here we’ve got a public footpath I don’t run directly
next to it yeah so you should an ROC post down there’s a public footpath
there what you’re going to get you’re going to get kids to our break into it
so why just demolish it no trace of it so it can’t be yeah no use freely elicit
back to know stuff that’s the nature a lot of people
comment at least who come in and walk their dogs and they would see people two
people who I open the hatch climb in and the grounder there was also private
areas aren’t they yeah you know so take some walk into so they’re not just on
the side device if you would only know what’s going on Christ
isn’t it just sort of mushroom folks by that up that goes up there yeah and then it dips
down yeah really ashamed roof yeah so yes that was Newbury RFC post location
will observe a call folks amazing piece of history on to the next location yeah all right they won’t for a count or
whether they were yeah yeah depends like some locations going back to life mm
yeah like the southeast has got loads of old-fashioned Maps it always seems to be than it is so what
is this that’s a trick point well it’s one of them on top of that hill we went
up remember you stood on top of it jumped off oh yeah I think it’s supposed
to signify the highest point of a particular area where I define pick on
thinking widely I’m sure some someone I’ll check out exactly the old truth
point folks right on to the next location folks they left it Road very carefully this very passing place for frequent
also supports go this is will be we’ll pay for that whiskeys
now why she watches watch slippery release a dachshund it’s a good coke – Arecibo – okay the open wow that’s a big tray is a bit bigger because all the rides
it’s a football thing over here that’s what he was there to stop queen boy
accorded little you hit there that was a lot bigger than last time I came up as it suggests on the phone you but back past it
is as the the guys
or we could go up to the main road remember but that’s where some looking
forward to that’s the easiest way to get to it to about this side yeah dykes is
it come together look hello to my peers unless there’s an
article something comes with you at all taken their Mia
motion get come down it won’t go to South just there oh oh you can’t see it
because of the certain behaves but yeah Greenman Commons just I was there
radiation detector got it it’s in the car
she’ll get it go on right got the glove counter then folks this is because we
need green and common just over there so just going to test see what’s coming out
also we’ve got that microwave thing up there so might come over some something
interesting hopefully it does nothing in a minute here we go it takes slot few
seconds to warm up and let’s go to the RSC post location could have kept the silence built like
so if you look right they can see green and walked out
so here screening water towers there right but you see I mean sir okay yeah
yeah yeah thank ya there you go so water I was over there somewhere you’re
speaking up it probably does expand that so yeah the this site of this wall
observer Court opened 1959 this one shut down 1968 and they’ve demolished the
post apparently it might be under one of
those tanks there why not utilize it instead of destroying it
yeah if we can find any evidence yeah
hopefully we can’t just go and buy what it says on the internet folks share the
counter that’s ten so all sort no more normal swords a big
concrete slab it could be actually yes I could have been here demolished will destroy the post used to ruffle fur
oh you know see that folks that’s telegraph pole for the post why should
we go round up full of that football yeah would be nice for if they haven’t
destroyed it yeah well they like these days people like destroying things
though destroying them to build houses and
stuff that’s all money-making game it’s a sickening history folks I know there’s
a lot of them still around but the more that preserved the better in in our eyes
so yes they call kissing gates was eggs I suppose if you want to go through it
together you’re like sort of nearly kissing baby
maybe folks no it’s not that’s the end of it as well
so that’s not going anywhere else it’s actually that should be commissioned
telephone telegraph pole whatever they called us but that’s a power that’s
power not saying that being what this place is thick the water it might not be
power it might be I know if there’s any telecommunication experts chuckling out
there is that either a power power line or is it a thickened telephone wire or
fiber-optic one the black one you see the two brackets at the top that would
have been for the old story where they wrap the wire around yeah this is definitely definitely signs that
we can’t see any evidence of any no but look at the other way that’s another one
ticked off the list yeah yes it’s under there somewhere although side that’s a little quicker in
the – it’s not now start an apology we’re already doing she was gummy for this dirty people
