Pow camp Breachwood Green

I’m looking for any information about the WW2 POW/internment camp that used to be located adjacent to Baileys Farm Breachwood Green.
In the late 1950’s as a four year I lived in this camp for about eighteen months along with my mum and dad, my sister was born in the camp. We lived there with about twenty other families, a family in each end of a nissan hut. The reason we all ended up in an ex pow camp was to qualify for a council house, you had to be literally homeless. We had to live in the camp until our council houses in Offley were finished, when finished the entire camp was moved to the new council estate in Offley. As you could imagine a brand new council house was like a palace compared to the nissan huts in the camp.
Any information on the Breachwood Green pow camp would be much appreciated.
