Proteus Training Camp
This former army / TA / cadet training camp is situated in Sherwood forest, just North of Ollerton on the A614. The 21-hectare site was used by the Ministry of Defence as an Army training camp until October 2004 when it became surplus to requirements. The site had accommodated up to 1,000 personnel at its peak along with tanks, mechanized vehicles and a small arms firing range. From the early 1940s it was used by the British and American armed forces and a significant number of barrack buildings, vehicle stores and other structures remain on the site - though it has now reverted back to the control of the Thoresby Estate.
