    Smile Prisoner Of War Camp 116


    POW Camp 116 - Mill Lane

    Prisoner of War Camp 116 was set up in 1941 to house Italian prisoners of war, and from 1943-1944 it mainly held German and Austrian prisoners.

    The prisoners were allowed out of the camp to work on nearby farms, which were plotted around the camp, this gave the prisoners a chance to communicate with some normality.

    We had come across this site from a random walk one evening with a couple of friends after work, Luckily enough we all had some type of camera with us, so we could take some shots of this really interesting looking place, to be truthful when we had come across it none of us had any idea of what it was, we had knew it was some kind of farm from back in the day, but when I got home I researched it and found out it was a POW Camp

    Hope you enjoy the shots

    Looks really interesting because of all the machinery left behind. Loving that little old Combine Harvester! That would go well on my shabby smallholding that would :)

    Was down here the other day and demo is well under way!
    One of my favourite explores for years so will be sadly missed.
    Anyone wants to see it get down there now before they get rid of the last bits of history left

    Undercover, there are a few buildings left, a lot is gone though, probably more gone by now! A nice little piece of our local history lost
