Camp 186: The Lost Town of Berechurch

A new book, written by Ken Free and entitled Camp 186: The Lost Town of Berechurch has just been published by Amberley Publishing (click here to buy).

It tells the story of the Prisoner of War camp in Colchester during the Second World War which, among other things, housed a Catholic seminary for captured students for the priesthood who had been serving in the German army. Monsignor Davis of Oscott visited the camp to lecture to the seminarians.

There is a chapter devoted to the seminary and to the links with the local Catholic community in Colchester.
