WWII PoW camp for sale on eBay (UK)





A former Prisoner of War camp in County Durham 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.
