This is a work in progress. It has been prepared for a survey, with a view to getting every building on the Camp occupied or “into use” in one form or another. Click on any building and return to this page using the browser’s “back” button.
Rentable: definition in this context “capable of independently supporting electricity and water charges”
Sports field area to the East of Main Drive
5 building including Officers Mess and 4 rentable and 1 cdt – Garage. Chapel excluded.
8 rentable and 6 cdt or community used
15 rentable and 7 cdt or community used
This makes a total of 27 buildings that could be brought into use and contribute to electricity and water costs, and 14 buildings where these services could pay their way by enhancing community use of the Camp
This section includes the 11 Ablutions – Toilets and Showers Huts
Hut 72. Occupied
Hut 53. Occupied
The four huts to the West of Compound C and the four to the East of Compound D in order South to North were:
Toilets 48 (m), 68 (m)

Toilet Cubicles 51, 71 (f)
The larger ablutions blocks 53 (male) and 72 (female) and 22 (female) are all occupied as follows:
Hut 53 The boiler room may be usable – it was built to run on gas. Currently being developed as a Craft Brewery, under the R&L Scheme
Hut 73 Joiner Workshop under Repair & Lease Scheme
Hut 22 Beetroot and Chocolate – storage for Outside Catering businesss
Hut 22 (Garage) The Southern end of Hut 22 could see the Garage upgraded to allow Henderson’s mechanics to service vehicles on site.
Points for consideration: Cost of existing space in the village.
Need for Power, lighting, fire alarms, safety exits
Also needed optionally: water, toilets
Commercial or Personal Investment
Next step up from R & L. Cost of restoration exceeds £5000
Area under discussion
Repair & Lease
What happens when the 5 year term runs out?
There was a concern that allocations might prevent some larger scale development (such as the Self Catering Project) but it appears that generally, we have found solutions and made adjustments to accommodate new ideas.
