I visited Brigstock POW Camp with spanner28, who has just signed up on here. The photos are courtesy of him

Good stuff. Makes a change to see wooden huts at a camp instead of BCF ones.

Seeing as Brigstock Camp was many things during its life but never a PoW camp, should this thread be moved to a more relevant folder?

One day I WILL find the copy of the RSP I have (courtesy of British Steel Corp. Property Department many many moons ago) and scan it in. ;)

All the best,

It's longest lease of life was for workers at Corby steelworks wasn't it?

I'll have to check how long they used it, as opposed to owning it.
It must be close to the length of time it was an emigrant training camp (1925-39).

All the best,
