History
This former army / TA / cadet training camp is situated in Sherwood forest, just North of Ollerton on the A614.
The 21-hectare site was used by the Ministry of Defence as an Army training camp until October 2004 when it became surplus to requirements.
The site had accommodated up to 1,000 personnel at its peak along with tanks, mechanized vehicles and a small arms firing range.
From the early 1940s it was used by the British and American armed forces and a significant number of barrack buildings, vehicle stores and other structures remain on the site – though it has now reverted back to the control of the Thoresby Estate.

In the News - Aug 2008
A PROPOSAL to build up to 170 holiday lodges on a disused Army camp in Ollerton have been welcomed by the town's community leaders.
Ventura Lodges Ltd has submitted plans to convert the Proteus Camp, on Blyth Road, into holiday homes and other facilities including a bar and fitness suite.
A second application for change of land use and the demolition of the existing buildings has also been made.
Both applications are being considered by Newark & Sherwood District Council planning officers – but have been backed by town councilors
