Published by the Banstead History Research Group in 2001, 26 pages. A5 size booklet (N4323)

The town of Banstead lies in Surrey on the border with Greater London, just east of Epsom, and although strictly a town it is often referred to by locals as 'Banstead Village'. Just south of Banstead, and bordered by Woodmansterne and Chipstead is Banstead Wood, and during the Second World War this area was requisitioned and used by the War Department.....

A camp was constructed, and was initially used by the Canadian Army to house soldiers, whilst later employed as a prisoner-of-war camp, housing first Italians and then Germans. This booklet offers a fascinating brief history of the camp, and includes a couple of small black and white photographs, as well as a page of hand drawn maps showing the camp at various stages between the 1930's and 1950's.

Condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the staple spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
