This site is directly adjacent to former PoW Camp 1006 Willems Barracks and is just off the Wellington Roundabout on the A335 in Aldershot.

This site echoes that of 1006 and contains a preserved entrance to the former barracks. In addition, the gate house has been preserved as a school. There is a surrounding wall and large building within this site that have escaped the developers.

Unlike 1006 where commercial properties have been built this former barracks and PoW site now contains a housing estate along with schools.
