    Default Stoke Heath Camp - Aug 20




    Stoke Heath was made up of a number of camps and working sites. Longford was a camp site which included Mess Room and NAAFI. Sutton was a camp site only and personnel used the longford Mess and NAAFI Facilities. Headquarters was situated on the edge of Ternhill Airfield along with work site A. B site was a vehicle repair site to which we travelled on what was known as the Burma Road from Longford Camp. B site is now a Prison. Other sites were Roman Camp and Buntingsdale, married quarters everyone posted to Stoke Heath was issued with a bicycle to travel around the area.(Thought it was a big site)



    Visited here on way up North with my lad for a few days. If you like natural ingress & peely paint its the place for u.

    If you do go please be aware there was a pair of barn owls roosting in the large water tower so avoid that if u can.
