Prisoner of War Camp 116 was set up in 1941 to house Italian prisoners of war, and from 1943-1944 it mainly held German and Austrian prisoners.

Camp 116 (Mill Lane Camp, Hatfield Heath) conforms to the so-called ‘Standard’ layout.

Seeing as this was only my 2nd time of going out I wasn't too impressed. The gates were locked and there was barbed wire fencing sections off - Would prob have been better at night and with someone with more experience.

Thanks guys. It was a nice place for taking photos but I was disappointed in the lack of entry into other buildings. Maybe after a bit more experience I'll gain more confidence and start thinking more like an Urbexer :)

Don't think they are locked up but they are all fenced off with barbed wire and the gates were locked. Not really a great idea to be climbing in the middle of the day (or was I just being over cautious?)
