News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Barham post was retained for a while after standown as remote test ban verification site. There was a seismometer mounted on the floor. I don't know who carried this out but suspect it was used by AWE Blacknest which is a part of AWE Aldermaston. Their main test ban verification site is in the Scottish Borders at Eskdalemuir.

The underground posts were nearly allways cold and damp, so its quite common to see that they had been covered with polystyrene tiles, this was an offical modification carried out by the post teams. The authorites put a stop to this practice, as a fire in the post would have probably killed the team [radiations OK]tokzic fumes no. Ithink i know who carried out this deed and will tell him off as soon as I see him.

Thanks for adding these pics, It's good to see whats left in each post.  Gives you a good idea of what was in there before they were disbanded.
