Remains of US Army camp buildings (1), Burlish Top Nature Reserve, Stourport-on-Severn
The US Army had a camp in Stourport in 1943-45, during the Second World War. Much of it was in what is now Burlish Top Nature Reserve. Although many paths/tracks remain, what you can see in this photograph seems to be the only building structure which survives and not very much of that either. It is likely it was part of the surgical wing, which was here in 1944-45. That covered sixteen huts. An old Ordnance Survey map, available on the Where's the Path website, shows the position of the camp's huts which extended into areas which are now housing estates.
