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.

I miss Anzio camp found memories . The training area was quality .
The Naffi was quality the food at the scoff house was shit hot and the accommodation
Was great . Only thing with bleak leak was the weather could rain snow and sunshine all at the same time . If it’s not raining it ain’t training
