This again is a site for which the 2003 English Heritage PoW Report was unable to locate.

However, some basic investigation pulled up information that the site had been located and subject to an Archaeological Investigation, GeoPhysics etc and confirmed as the PoW Camp.

In modern times it is a mixed facility play and sports ground with no visible indications of the sites past.
