PoW Camp 273 Flixton Airfield

This is one of the better former PoW Sites in regards the sate of the buildings and the concept abandonment at a former dispersed airfield site.

This site is or rather was one of the accommodation sites from Station 125 Bungay / Flixton Airfield and is located next door to a food processing factory. This site essentially consists of a multiple prefab, brick and Nissen huts that appear to have been used by a farmer as storage but have since been abandoned.

The site is unusual in that it consists of multiple buildings with water towers, Maycrete Huts and the remains of a couple of Nissen Huts amd a number of Hut Bases.. Whilst the site and buildings are clearly abandoned and or no longer being used for storage and quite frankly are as many such buildings unsafe there are indications that someone has been on the site. The bottom doors of a number of buildings have holes cut in them to allow cats to get in and out the buildings and someone is providing bowls of water for the cats.

In terms of photography it is an ideal site for documenting what these buildings looked like as well as showing the effects of time and abandonment, in addition I also arrived on a day with very good weather and light.

Whilst there is no doubt that the PoW Camp was located within one of the several dispersed sites around the airfield it is possible that this specific site is not the actual site used. I would be grateful of any data that confirms this specific location or points to another nearby site.
