Forties Weekend

This afternoon we decided to visit Hughenden Manor, Buckinghamshire, where there was a special event. The manor, formally the home of Victorian Prime Minister Disraeli, was requisitioned during the war and used as a mapping centre and so it has strong links with wartime military history. There were lots of exhibits to see and very enthusiastic and knowledgeable folk in period dress brought it all to life.

Such an interesting afternoon.
