The US Camp remains in Nettlebed is one of the many sites in the Chilterns, South Oxfordshire area since my early urbex days.

During the Second World War, the quiet woods around Nettlebed and Peppard were a hive of activity, as camps were set up to accommodate allied troops. Around a quarter of a million personnel were housed there, along with equipment including tanks, trucks and ambulances. One of the groups stationed in the area was the 343rd US Army Engineers.
Not much remains of the camp today except a Castle monument built in 1942 known as The Engineers Castle, and another building on Old Camp Road in Nettlebed.
There is also a built a sewerage and water treatment plant, which still serves Nettlebed to this day.

If anyone knows any more information about this location it would be amazing to know.
