The mis-named Eden Camp is more like an introduction to Inferno. 30plus close-packed wartime huts that originally housed PoWs, now containing themed displays on various aspects of WW2. The Home Front, Blitz, U-boats, Bomber Command, air raids, fire-watching, rationing, ATS, WRNS, Dunkirk, Eighth Army, Burma, SOE, PoW escapes, D Day, War Trials and an assortment of hardware including Spitfire, V2 rockets and something labelled Nuclear Warhead.
The food ration lists made a big impression, as did the morse-code signals. Visitors were more or less equally divided between boys and grandparents (who could probably remember rationing and air raids and dads in uniform, and were not attracted by the basic menu and cooking smells of the wartime-canteen style café). Bafflingly, there’s no information on who owns, runs and devises the museum: it seems to have sprung from or settled in farmland rather in the manner that the camp was first placed there.
