Park Farm is used as both a working farm and an exhibition and visitor centre. On meeting the owner, I was shown into their exhibition halls which included information on the WWII PoW Camp.

The Camp although names for the car was a few hundred meters away on the edge of Thorney. A very new housing estate now sites on the site of the former PoW Camp and adjoins an earlier housing estate. In fact, on the current OS Maps 1:25,000 maps (at the time of my visit) but not Google show the location of the former camp is shown as a field or defined area that adjoins the older housing estate. I took several photos of Park Farm, Thorny on the way to the site and on the site of the camp itself in what is a modern housing estate that directly backs on to an older housing estate.
