A former prisoner of war [...].
Harperley Prisoner of War Camp was turned into a tourist attraction in 2004 but the owners cannot afford to complete its restoration. The camp, near Crook, County Durham, housed German and Italian prisoners during the Second World War.
It won ancient monument status after being bought in 2001 by James and Lisa McLeod, who had hoped to turn it into a national visitor centre.
Mr McLeod, 41, said he and his wife had spent about pounds 1 million on the 12-acre site over the past eight years.
The site now has a garden centre, restaurant, farm shop and museum, as well as the original 49 prisoner huts.
Their asking price is pounds 900,000.
