Welcome to Wynches Camp 411

Wynches Camp 411 was still under construction at the time of Dunkirk in May 1940 which meant that the the units based in Much Hadham were under canvas at the village park with a mess hut in the village hall car park. Initially the camp was used as training/transit camp and  later being used as pow camp firstly for Italians then from 1946 to 1948 Germans.

From the amount of identity tags from stalag camps being found, at some point between 1945 to 1946  there is influx into the camp of allied pows, this may also explain a vast amount of medicine bottles and buttons from battle dress uniforms.

We will be putting the latest news and information about Wynches Camp 411 in Much Hadham, Hertfordshire on this site.

Latest Finds

At the weekend opened up a small trench (no 4) near the main dig site. Unearthed a lot of medicine bottles, water bottles and other glassware. Also in trench 1 discovered a tin which surprisingly contained some rather leathery looking biscuits (pictures in the gallery).

Discovered another area which is starting to produce hundreds of items whilst trying to locate a possible air raid shelter. Items include…stalag dog tag, metal sign with the union jack, stove from a nissen hut.
