Harperley POW Camp

View All Collections

Harperley (Camp 93), opened in 1943, was a purpose-built camp for housing first Italian, and then German prisoners of war captured by the British and allied soldiers. The photographer (Cindy Nunn), while conducting research on the camp before conducting a large paranormal investigation at this location, was able to find a surviving German POW, who she corresponded with for a number of years, gaining inside knowledge of life at the camp. For the most part the German POWs, mostly very young men, were content here, but graffiti left by earlier Italian POWs tells a different story of how they felt about being “guests” of the British. Estimates vary as to how many prisoners of these low-level security risk prisoners had been housed here, ranging from 426 to 899, with another 1000 being billeted at local hostels. This particular compound provided the prisoners with a chapel for spiritual needs, and a canteen for social gatherings. They also had a theater, which instead of a level concrete floor like all the rest of the buildings, has a purpose built stage, orchestra pit and an auditorium rising up in broad steps. Remains of decorated interior panels also still survive. Many of these prisoners began well known to locals since they were utilized to help with agricultural work at local farms, and often attended social events, meetings, and even lectures at the Durham University Library. These young men were also popular with some of the young women, as was evidenced by a number of pregnancies occurring from these liaisons. After the war was over the camps started to close down in 1948, with prisoners being repatriated to their home countries. However, over 25,000 German prisoners opted to stay and became citizens of the United Kingdom.
