This PoW Hostel can be found close to the original English Heritage 2003 PoW Report original coordinates in what is now a Golf Equipment Producer which has retained the original main buildings.

The USAAF Map identifies this area as Admin and would have included a number of Nissen Huts at this site as shown in the original photos in what are now landscaped gardens plus the USAAF memorial
