PoW Camp 108 Thirkleby

Parts of this former PoW Camp have survived and appear to be an active farm. As such access was limited and a repeat visit with actual site access is needed

Despite efforts on my part prior to visiting this site and then visiting adjacent houses and farms I was unable to contact the site owner. As this site, or parts of it appear to be an active pig farm I was unable to safely enter the site as such I took a number of images from the site boundary with my camera and then used a drone to take other shots of the site.

Having said the above, I need to revisit and to photograph this site properly as along with a number of similar sites that serve as a farm and light industrial usage some buildings remain in use and others have been abandoned making this a primary site to photograph.
