Gilsland ROC Post is totally stripped with only the Cupboard, a bucket, a mat and a poster on the wall remain.
Situated in Gilsland 1km north from the A69. Also can be seen from the A69 easily.
Easy access via a minor road.
Has not got a T-bar Mechanism anymore and could not close properly and was kept shut by two rocks and a peice of Blue rope running through the Hasp holes and over the hatch and tied in a easy to untie knot. :)
the Sump was Filled with water but no water overflowing the Sump as of yet.

The foot and mouth stamp really creeped me out when i was here, shame its soo stripped though.

The foot and mouth stamp didn't bother me really, maybe i was too young to remember how bad the foot and mouth event was even though i remember watching a massive hill of cows being burnt :0.. when did you go there?
