Chaddlewood House still exists and local news articles implied that only the main house was used as a PoW Camp.

The PoW Camp is reported to have been made up as per many such camps where a stately home / large villa was used in that they consisted of the main house along with temporary accomodation typically in the form of Tents, Nissen or Wooden Huts within the grounds.

The house today has been converted into flats and sits alongside a modern housing estate with no trace of any of the temporary accommodation.
