    I have been taking multiple visits to camp 4 Scraptoft as it is the 2nd closet camp to my self and where my research started.

    After 12 months I can honestly say that is the best-preserved site of its type in the country.

    That is to say all but about 3 bases have been cleared - these are under tree cover and cannot be seen.

    What can be seen though in great detail using a drone and to a limited extent in Google Map views is the outlines of the building.

    There are NO OTHER SITES that I have visited that show the layout of a camp like this place and I have now visited close to 200 sites

    Regrettably planning permission has been granted to cover this field with houses
