This former PoW Site is located alongside Birdingbury Lane just to the South East of the small Warwickshire village of Frankton.

The site as it exists today is simple farmland. The field in which the site was based is used to graze sheep and has not right of way, footpath or public access. As such I was unable to make a physical search of the field in order to ascertain is any hut bases or hidden signs of the came have persisted to modern times. Using a drone to search the sites in addition to creating a MapView image from a series of shoots plus multiple oblique images no traces of the former site were detected.
