Approached from the layby on path then towards then over the wall.Managed to climb up to first floor pulling myself up,then once up easy pull up onto roof.Rivet mounted on raised lump also four witness rivets found as well good views from the top.Think the post was attached to the nearby ROC Station as the big military area at Catterick would have been a prime target in the cold war.

Easy to find the observation post but I think you need a helping hand to get to the roof.After 15 mins of increasingly desparate abortive attempts this goes down as an epic fail followed by a doff of the cap to CJO for his achievement

SE38 T011 RIVET. Rivet on top of two storey aircraft monitoring station adjacent to ROC post. It is possible to climb to the top of the building with some difficulty. I made it to the first floor and managed to grab the belt of my assistant and haul them up. The descent was interesting.
