On Wednesday Weds 7th June the Ipswich Group will visit the fascinating Great War Huts Project. It is based at Bells Lane, Hawstead,  IP29 5NW, near Bury St Edmunds. The visit will start at 11:00.

The site has been building for some years. It uses, and reconstructs, original Great War Huts collected from across the country. These contain genuine artefacts to give more of an idea of what soldiers would have encountered at their Training Camps and elsewhere.

A section of a Great War (Western Front) trench system is also being created.

To find out more about the site check out their website, at greatwarhuts.org

A small number of readers are welcome to join the group. However you must book as spaces are very limited. To book e-mail: [email protected] as soon as possible. You will have to make your own way there.
