It’s noticeable, I haven’t explored much the last few years so with the screw it attitude I head over to what I thought had long gone. With a few baffled people telling me otherwise, over to POW 116 we went!

After parking up and walking to the nearest easy entry point we were surprised to find a family showing their kids around the site and a few FPV drones zipping around the site.

The site is very much in ruins which was somewhat to be expected, but the highlight for myself being some wrecks of cars rusting away even though flicking through other reports I seem to have missed out some of the vehicles.

Onwards with the snippet of history.

POW 116 once held prisoners from Germany, Italy, and Austria – and was the scene of a poignant footie match between locals and former POWs on Boxing Day 1945

This place has seen better days, but still quite interesting to see
