WWII PoW Camp For Sale on eBay

Posted by admin on Sep 29, 2009

A former Prisoner of War camp in County Durham, UK, is being sold on eBay.

Harperley camp, near Crook, was turned into a tourist attraction in 2004, but the owners can no longer afford to complete its restoration.

The camp housed German and Italian prisoners in World War II and won ancient monument status after being bought by its present owners in 2001.

James and Lisa McLeod had hoped to turn it into a national visitor centre. It has gone on sale for £900,000.

Mr McLeod, 41, said he and his wife had spent about £1m on the 12-acre site over the past eight years, but had to mothball their venture two years ago through lack of funds.
