    Default prisoner of war camp 116 (mill lane)


    time for my 2nd report!
    visited this site a couple of times, thought id upload the pics as its not a widley documented site.
    dont know whether or not this should be added to the "live sites" part or not as half the place is used as an egg packing facility.
    the site held german and italian prisoners who would be sent out to work in the community, eg on farms.
    there is a good article on the site with a lot of info, a lot of which i didnt know until 10 mins ago! here is the link;

    this monster is an old combine harvester made by massey harris. maybe used by the prisoners while working on farms? this is where the infamous mummified fox is located

    looks like a stove used to sit here but the decoration was the main reason for the pic
