The Camps

The camps at Sutton Mandeville were situated to the north and south of the A30, between Fovant and Swallowcliff. Their position can be seen from the remains of tracks that can be seen as cropmarks in the fields. The buildings of Manor Farm were also requisitioned. The camps were removed at the end of the First World War. Some of the huts were moved to new locations and re-used. One was used as a house near Buxbury Farm, where it still stands. We hope to build up a much clearer picture of the camps at Sutton Mandeville.
