The hamlets of Low Hulam and High Hulam in County Durham are located about 4 miles north-west of Hartlepool and just under a mile west of Hutton Henry. There was a village documented here in medieval times, but of which there is no trace today.[1] During World War 2 a prisoner of war camp was built here, this was a satelite of Harperley POW Camp no. 93.
