ISLAND FARM website has acquired a very special domain name!
We are a
local group of four 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.
