This site is now a field with wheat growing on one part of the field and what looks like beans on another part.

There are a few mounds of rubble and an intact building plus a folly within the field but any relation to the former PoW Camp is simply not possible to determine without a very close inspection.

There is through a substantial road and a feature within the field which how that at one time something of substance existed within the fields. Owing to my own condition at the time and the fact that the field was full of crops the disturbed area within the field was only photographed using the drone
