    There isn't very much history on this place except to say it was once a POW camp. Most of the buildings are empty except for some which are basically full of old farm junk. I was a bit dubious about hanging around this site; I've no idea what an angry farmer might do if he found me there.

    From wiki...
    Beryllium oxide is used in many high-performance semiconductor parts for applications such as radio equipment because it has good thermal conductivity while also being a good electrical insulator. BeO is carcinogenic.
