Using a GPS programmed with the grid reference of the post we are looking for, we “home in” on the location of the post.
The grid references for all the ROC posts can be found in the post survey on the excellent and extremely useful Subterranea Britannica website.

On this occasion, we were looking for the site of the Newhaven post, which was classed as DEMOLISHED on Nick’s site. We agreed!
However, there was a dip in the ground which we felt probably “marked the spot”.
