Ilford Resettlement camp, Devon, June 2009




Originally a WWII American Military hospital, after the war in 1948 the abandoned camp, with its long rows of concrete huts with corrugated asbestos roofs and covered walkways, became home to hundreds of Polish Displaced Persons. Stover Park camp as it was known, was one of 45 camps/hostels run by the National Assistance Board catering for the needs of displaced Polish people who survived the war, and escaped the traumas of deportations into the depths of Siberia and exile.
