This former PoW Camp is now a vehicle recycling centre with many surviving Maycrete huts and Hut Bases. In addition, two of the huts have been extensively renovated and are used as housing.

Not only have some of the huts survived to modern times but so has an impressive statute made by Italian PoWs.

The site also contains military equipment as well as its own flock of Peacocks.

Whilst a number of drone shots were taken they were of low quality owing to low cloud
