Another hot and sunny May day when I visited this site initially armed only with locational information from the English Heritage 2003 PoW Camp Report. Because of my limited information I limited he images shot in and around this location near to the Western edge of Haverfordwest. Well it turns out that thanks to the research from Malcolm Sanders that I had the right location.

My images show the site but not as well as I would like and at some point, in the future I need to revisit and reshoot. This site as it existed when I visited is in three sections:

  • To the West there a few houses of the same age and style as the other houses in the street.
  • In the Centre there is Thompsons Laundry an industrial type building with a metal roof and blue cladding.
  • To the East there was a building site with a sign saying Rossiter Construction. This site had a half constructed new large building, but of more interest were the part demolished remains of older buildings had may have been part of the camp.
