Observation Post near Cowling Pinnacle
Could anyone please enlighten me about the Observation Post photo (behind or near to Cowling Pinnacle) - was that Sutton's Post or Cowling's? Also could we have some more information on the photos from Mike Towers - great photos thanks for sharing them.

The bunker is officially listed as the Cowling ROC Post, but it is actually in Sutton. Cowling is the nearest village, so it would make sense give that as its location. I went down into it in the mid 1960's when it had been left unlocked. There were bunks, table and chairs and a siren. We didn't stop down there long as we didn't want to get caught. It appeared to be abandoned. I think the only other local one is Redcar ROC Post, which is in the field just beyond Keighley Tarn on the road to Steeton.
