Displaced Persons Camp Wootton 1948.

Shown below is a picture of a group of people sat on the steps of one of the buildings that formed part of the "camp". I have never been able to find out any details about the camp other than people from Eastern Europe were billited there after the Second World War around 1948.This picture was supplied by Mr Harrison who's grandfather and grandmother are shown in the picture [front and second row, centre]. I am told that during the war the building/s were used by the air raid warden and civil defence.
