    Featherstone POW Camp

    Featherstone POW Camp is situated on the grounds of Featherstone Castle on a very nice stretch of the South River Tyne, a mile north of Lambley.
    After only finding out this place existed earlier this week I decided to plan a nice weekend trip to see what remains.
    I was loosely escorted around the site by a security bull for a while until it eventually strolled off to another part of the site.
    Some of the stories about what happened at Featherstone and the POWs are very interesting and insightful.

    Brief History from Here

    A bunch of old photographs can be found Here

    I know my photos aren't the best, my camera didn't like the light on the day, but they'll do.

    The erosion damaged entrance gate

    There are many rows of foundations which can be seen better from an aerial viewpoint
