The Outstation was a dugout on the south facing slope of the Gypsy Race valley near the village of Rudston on the side of a small chalk pit, surrounded by mature woodland.
It was built of breeze blocks with a curved corrugated iron roof and a 12 foot long concrete escape tunnel which exits into the steep side of the chalk pit. The structure is split into 3 chambers by breeze block walls which are white washed. Some ventilation was via square wooden trunking. A nearby tree contains the aerial cable.
When it was first discovered, just after the war, by a Bridlington Scout troop it still contained a table and telephone. The corrugated iron is now slowly decaying.
