My friends and I visited Brigstock Camp today somewhere we have been planning on checking out for ages as it’s right on our doorstep. I’ve seen other posts on here and from what we saw today the site is decaying badly :(

We tried to find the pill box that is supposed to be at the top of the hill but we were unsuccessful.

BRIGSTOCK WW2 CAMP
Brigstock Camp built 1925 and over the years was used for 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.

History of the camp in brief.

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 .

Since the 60's remained mainly empty except for a Chicken Farm.

I am not the best photographer, but I hope you enjoy
