Anzio Camp

The Anzio Camp is situated near Leek in Staffordshire.
The camp was first used by the US Army in 1943, to house troops.

In 1945/6 the camp was taken over by Polish troops.
After the war it was used as a civilian settlement by the Poles until 1963/4 when they were moved to a purpose built site half a mile north of the camp
I cannot find much information on what the camp was used for between 1963 and the early 80's.
In 1980 the MOD took over the site and it was used as a training camp for Regular and Territorial Army troops and also scouts and cadets.
The camp closed in 2004 as it was deemed surplus to requirements by the MOD

It was bought in 2006 by care operator John Munroe Hospital, of Rudyard, with a view to developing a care home.
But the site was again sold, in July 2007, to a consortium of Courtyard Property Group and Smartwright Developments.
Planning officers recommended that the planning application is refused on the grounds that the site lies within open countryside on the fringe of the Peak District National Park, which is designated as a Special Landscape Area.

In 2010 the site was sold again to an Air soft company called first and Only.
