The Burlish Camp Project, funded by Wyre Forest District Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund and also Stourport Town Council, was set up to commemorate the former US Army Camp which operated in this area for the latter part of World War II. The project basically consisted of this block, which was to receive four interpretive panels, and plaques dotted around the former camp area marking various buildings etc., all of which have been long demolished. The area is now a local nature reserve.

This block, when photographed, had recently been built and was awaiting its panels and official opening. Today the panels are in place as are the various plaques. The block can be found on the main path running north from the small car park off Kingsway.
