Low Harperley (Harperley Hall)

  • Description

    "Low Harperley prisoner of war camp. Built during WWII by Italian P.O.Ws in the early 1940's and used to house German pilots and soldiers during the allied invasion of Europe. The owner of the site who died in early 1999 did not take up Government grant offers following the war to return the site to farmland or forestery. Instead the site was used for storage. The site reputedly covers an area of some seven hectare and includes barrack huts, a chapel and theatre...."
