Location of the former camp is relatively easy to find it being in the new Spiny area to the North West of Boughton House.

The remains of the access road as crumbling concert along with the outline of a hut r base at the end of the road. In addition to the main camp the remnants of a road barrier post can be found on the park road either side of the bridge over the River Ise. Interestingly the remains of another much smaller compound can be seen some 600m to the East of the PoW Camp and cross to the Public Entrance to the Park.
