This former PoW Site was made up of two separate but linked camps. One side of the camp close to a private road and within what is now Bunkers Hill Plantation was used to house Italian PoWs. The North side of the camp in what is now Common Piece Plantation was used to house German PoW.

Owing to back pain and considering several Keep Out Sights most of my image were shot using my drone.
The drone images of Common Piece Plantation appear to show the remains of a small number of PreFab and other buildings with nothing obvious within the nearer Bunkers Hill Plantation.
