This photo shows the entrance door of this TE which has a notice to indicated that this S5 Site is alarmed, and woe betide anyone who tries to break into it. The combination entry lock and light can be seen to the right hand side of the door, whilst a letter box can just be seen to the right of the photo, although that is probably now sealed up and letters cannot be pushed through it. However, it is unlikely that this TE would receive any post these days. Above the door is the Edward VIII cipher and the year 1936. The postcode of this TE is PO37 7LN.
