Whitchurch ROC Post (Oving), Jan-2010

Posted by thirtyfootscrew On February - 4 - 2010

I wanted to start the year with a little bit of urbex but had limited time so an ROC post was ideal, I caught wind on the ‘net that the Whitchurch post (in a Buckinghamshire village called Oving) was in reasonable condition (no floods, no vandalism) so I headed up that way and found the place pretty easily.  After parking up a side street and approaching via a public footpath I realised that the easy way was from the main road, the fence is wide open and despite the traffic it’s easy to get in and out, though it is quite exposed to passers by.  The hatch is on fine, though the clasps weren’t in place when I arrived…

…down in the post it’s in reasonable condition with most of the furniture gone but what’s left is in reasonable shape…

There are a couple of original artefacts intact and for the first time in an ROC post I also saw some telecoms equipment intact, though I’m guessing the door was brought down here as a replacement unless the stickers were added in-situ…

All in all it was a good little trip and the hatch is better sealed than it was in the first place so I left the place happy, sorry if the photos aren’t entirely clear – I didn’t have torch with me (doh!) and I only had my point-and-shoot camera rather than the DSLR.
