Visited on a few occasions, most recently with Meliorama and Mk2Golfkid. Nice little site especially if u have interest in military, although since my last trip it has deteriorated quite badly so its a ASAP if you planning a trip. If u want any more details just let me know

"In 1943, a transit camp for USA anti-aircraft units was constructed on the East side of the Buxton Road. In 1945-6 it was taken over by Polish troops from Italy (Probably where the 'Anzio' bit came from). After the war, it became a Polish resettlement camp. Then in 1964, the residents were settled in purpose built accomodation half a mile North from the original site. In 1983, the camp opened as the Anzio site and became a training centre for both the Regular and Territorial Army and even scouts."

It closed during 2005-2006 and there are rumours of it being turned into a retirement village, (i believe to date this has now been scrapped)

The Bar

Ammunition Stores

One of the obstacles on the assult course

Rifle Range

Obligatory razor wire shot

Hope u like.
