DSLR & Drone Photos


This former Hospital site was used as a PoW Hospital and as such counts as a PoW Camp. The hospital is now long gone and has been replaced by an out of town shopping centre – The Yorkshire Design Outlet.

The English Heritage data gives the PoW Camp part of the site as the North Corner of what is now the car park. At the time I had no confirming data so I limited myself to just taking a small number of photographs with both a DSLR and Drone Camera of this portion of the car park.

Since writing this up I have had the opportunity to look at the WW2 P.O.W. Camps research by Malcolm Sanders which confirms the original data.
