    So today me and FaZy UK planned a trip to a local place to see if it was worth shooting and on the way and came across this which i had never been to so we stopped off to have a mooch this place is well and truly decayed now but even in its state its still got a few things worth seeing. here is a bit of history on the camp which dates back to pre ww2 times.

    Brigstock Camp was built 1925 and over the years was used as an Emigration Camp, an Army Camp, ATS and Land Army Camp, US Army Training School, and in 1960 Stewarts & Lloyds Steelworks purchased Brigstock Camp for £23,000 at an auction. One hundred people moved from Scotland to work at the Steelworks and used Brigstock Camp for their living quarters and paid between £2.00 to £4.00 a week in rent and were allowed to stay up to nine months to allow them to find suitable accommodation. Many did so in the new expanding Corby.

    55 Huts built 1925

    Sold to war office in 1939, Army camp for world war 2

    After the war was a home to 400 ATS Auxiliary Territorial Service Females until 1947.

    Plans were drawn up for an open Borstal, but never happened.

    American Army took over in 1951

    Closed 1954

    Opened in 1960 for Steelworkers accommodation.

    I have just noticed now too a few of my pics have a slight tiny blur as there was a piece of crap on my lens :banghead

    If anyone is a plumber or knows a bit about plumbing then they will notice this belt driven pump is at least 80 years old :D
