An account of building of A,B,C and D camps adjacent to the A303 at Barton Stacey, Hampshire during WW2.

The request was partially successful.

Peter Francis Wood

Dear Defence Infrastructure Organisation,
My name is Peter F Wood (Retired Major RE). I am a member of the Barton Stacey History Group (BSHG) in Hampshire. My current project is to record the history of the building of A,B,C, and D camps that were adjacent to the A303 trunk road near Barton Stacey in Hampshire in 1940 - 42. Besides respectfully requesting the history of the actual building I would like to know when the land, on which they sat, was purchased, as I do know that much of the land around Barton Stacey was acquired by the War Office a year later in 1943 as part of the WW2 'war effort'. I also respectfully request information on the transport support as I understand that a temporary railway halt was built at Barton Stacey on the Didcot, Newbury and Southampton railway line to transport workers to and from the building site. Any photographs or pictures would be gratefully received.
Thanking you in anticipation.
Yours faithfully,
Peter F Wood
BSHG
