Date opened September 1961
Date closed October 1968
Location The most likely position is in allotments on the south side of a disused railway line although it could have been on waste ground between the allotments and a cemetery.
Description DEMOLISHED Although nothing obvious is visible it was not
possible to enter the allotments so something might still be visible. In the allotments there is what appears to be the remains of a compound with concrete fence posts, which include a gate opening. On the waste ground to the south there is are several rectangular mounds, which would be suitable sites.
Date of Visit 13.7.2001
Future Actions Further research needs to ascertain the exact position
including access to the allotments, then an 8 figure NGR can be calculated.
