Description

Join a guided walk to visit the site of the Second World War Prisoner of War Camp 65 on Setley Plain, home to Italian and later, German prisoners of war.

Little survives today to tell the story but a wealth of documents shed light on the WWII history right beneath your feet. You’ll explore the stories of WWII prisoners and discover more about they stay in the New Forest.
