The Luton Hoo volunteers have kindly agreed to lay on this very special day just for the Great War Society and Herts at War Learn about the great estates of England and how they coped during the First World War.
What they contributed to the war effort. How their lands and buildings were taken over for military use. How their men and their horses were sent to the front. Standing on the border of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire the Luton Hoo estate reached as far into Hertfordshire as Flamstead and included the farm at Cooter’s End, Harpenden where a very successful school for Land Army Girls was operated.
There will be six lectures, displays including the police officers posted to Luton Hoo and a tour of the grounds to look at some the locations used by our troops We have just 20 places - to book your place or for more information reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
