Italian POW Camp

Fairwarp has two sites of interest relating to the Second World War; The Airmen’s Grave and The Italian POW camp.

Just leaving the main village, heading east on The Street, tucked away in among trees is two dilapidated buildings that formed the POW camp. There is little information about the camp and it is slowly returning to nature.

Please Note:

The structure which is on private land is unsafe and contains asbestos. Therefore please do not go exploring.

Nigel you should ask older people in the community. My mum grew up there and she remembers it being used . I grew up in this area too. As a teenager the buildings were more intact We used to go past it to get to the woods to play
