As CJO says, it's within the secure compound for the radome, and has been gravelled over; quite possibly extant though. Top of The Verne is open to public visiting The Jailhouse Cafe, so took the opportunity to wander around the site before partaking of coffee. Cafe now open 10am-3pm, 7 days a week.

PP488 BLOCK. GPS points to gravelled area inside the radar done enclosure. Access to this was surprisingly easy. On approaching the prison gates a sign says access is restricted to prison use only or visitors to the Jailhouse cafe - open 10-3 Mon-Fri. We duly visited the cafe and its in the garden. While there took the opportunity to visit the HuMP.
