Fremington Army Camp, nr Barnstaple, Devon
The last day of our Dorset & Devon camping trip took us to North Devon. The disused Fremington army camp near Barnstaple which has laid derelict since 2009 and awaiting its fate. Currently being decided by Fremington Developments LLP. Although, no news has been updated since 2011
Fremington Army Camp (opened in 1943), although abandoned, has a sense of feeling that it could quite easily be used again at the drop of a hat. Hardly any damage has taken place, nor has Mother Nature really taken hold. It’s always good to see a site free of abuse and graffiti.
Exploring the camp
Nearly all the buildings at Fremington Army Camp are locked up tight, either under lock & key, or simply screwed shut. Luckily we found a couple which weren’t and the contents were fairly interesting. A theatre/stage set up which had been converted into a gym, lockers with a few personal items still remaining & a postal sorting room.
A rather basic, although very demanding-looking obstacle course remains, we were good boys and resisted having a go!
