Walton, Wellesbourne, CV35 9HG
DSLR and Drone Photos
In undertaking this project I have now visited some 300 seperate sites seeking to confirm and then photograph the vicarious locations of form WWII PoW Sites In England, Scotland and Wales. In the majority of cases I have got the location correct through a combination of my own research and that of other. On some occasions as with any form of research I have got it wrong. This site though is somewhat unique; the general location of the former PoW had been narrowed down to a couple of areas but with no diffantive proof. My site site to Walton and walking around I observed an area of low ground close to the river that would have been unsuitable. Next I walked the ground to the Esat of the Hall, again I saw nothing. However, on sending my drone up the site of the former camp was instantly revival.
Looking at the images below, it is easy to see what I saw with my own eyes – nothing to see on the ground, but from the air it’s a very different story
