ISLAND FARM website
has now a very
special domain name!
We regret that The October 2016 Open Weekend
IS now fully booked
We are a
local group of volunteers that have been asked to help preserve Hut 9, the last
remaining building on the
Island Farm site in Bridgend, South Wales.
We have many
aims for the future and some of these include the preservation of the building,
its escape tunnel (The Welsh Great Escape) and the collection and preservation of
all material pertaining to Island Farm and its former Prisoner of War Camp. This includes photographs,
documents, eyewitness accounts and day-to-day objects used in the camp.

by local historians/ members of our Preservation Group, containing bags of information, facts, figures and
very rare pictures. These websites are very unique and the
