Bulwell Hall Park Nottingham NG6 8BE
DSLR and Drone Photos
Shortly after the outbreak of World War II the Hall was taken over by the Army. First by the South Nottinghamshire Hussars Field Artillery, followed by the local Regiment of the Sherwood Foresters. About 1943-44 it became an Italian POW camp. Much damage was done during this time and it was further damaged by mining subsidence. It was demolished in 1958. Today there appears to be no surviving structure from the Camp with the park now being open to the public complete with a Golf Club House being built on the site of the hall with an extensive public park and golf course within what were the grounds of the hall.
During my visit to this site the bulk of my images were taken at the Clubhouse end of the park with a few images close to the entrance.
My images also include information boards that give the site history including its use as a PoW Camp.
It is also to be noted that although the site is close to Hucknall Aerodrome the aerodrome closed in 2015. The drone was thus flown legally IAW UK CAP 722 as such several images that show both Bulwell Park and Golf Club with that appears to be an airfield in the background.
