PostSubject: Wrottesley Park Wolverhampton   17/9/2011, 08:01

My grandfather wat stationed at Wrottesley Park near Wolverhampton for a training period of 9 months, before going to Glasgow and Northern Ireland for further training, and then being shipped off to Indonesia.

Now I would like to find out if the Wrottesley Park baraks are still there and if its possible to visit them.

Thanks for any help!
