Kinmel Military Camp

The news that 302 jobs in north east Wales will be lost when Indesit close their factory at Kinmel Park, Bodelwyddan has just been announced. This is a serious blow for the area and for those who may loose their jobs. The factory was built on the site of Kinmel Military Camp which was a huge facility constructed during the First World War. The Camp is infamous for the riot of homesick Canadian troops in 1919 awaiting de-mobilisation after World War I. The Kinmel Camp entry on Coflein will tell you more.
