    In 1943, a transit camp for USA anti-aircraft units was constructed on the East side of the Buxton Road. In 1945-6 it was taken over by Polish troops from Italy (Probably where the 'Anzio' bit came from). After the war, it became a Polish resettlement camp. Then in 1964, the residents were settled in purpose built accomodation half a mile North from the original site. In 1983, the camp opened as the Anzio site and became a training centre for both the Regular and Territorial Army.

    It closed during 2005-2006 and has recently been acquired by a company that does paintball (I think) so should be in a better condition soon

    Worryingly there were very fresh footprints on the wet floor

    I didn't take many internal pics as every room looks the same.
