HUT 9 open weekend EVENTS

All Events are suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic


 The history of this unique prisoner of war camp is of National significance for the 1939-1945 war.


 We are a local group of volunteers who have been asked to help preserve Hut 9, the last remaining building on the Island Farm camp site.

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.


The Hut 9 Preservation Group and the cohort of our volunteers and re-enactors who bring Hut 9 to life, are looking forward welcoming you to our next COVID-FREE Event at Island Farm.


Thank you all for your support and hope to see you soon at Hut 9.

 There are two websites, created and maintained by local historians. They contain bags of information, facts, figures and very rare pictures. These websites are very unique and the only and main global source material reference on the web regarding the Island Farm PoW Camp and the Munitions Ordnance factory in Brackla.

The Hut 9 Preservation Group, this web site and the two websites given above are dedicated to the history and research of the Island Farm POW camp, the German POWs and the ROF in Bridgend, interned during the years 1938 -1948. Although the web sites make reference to profiles of many POWs both during WWI and WWII, our Group and the web sites are not about the politics of Nazism. 

The extensive use of photographs within these web sites are done so for historical purposes and should not be viewed as an attempt to glorify the tragic and sad events of WWII.

The web sites do not support in any way those who would condone or embrace individuals, groups and/or organisations that are intolerant, racist or violent.

The web sites do not support or endorse those that use the theme of WWII history to further their own political agenda.

It is through education, study and research that one may come to their own conclusions about WWII and the German experience. Those that do not attempt to do so are guilty of ignorance. Only through honest, objective and impartial research can one ever hope to understand the plight of so many millions of people during the Second World War.

The web sites are respectfully dedicated to all those who suffered and died during the most devastating war in human history, on all sides.
