Heritage open days

10th - 19th September, 10am - 4pm

Great War Huts is taking part in Heritage Open Days 2021 and the team invite you to a fascinating new exhibition showing how military undergarments have changed from the flannel pants of the Boer War to the fragment-proof polyester and silk of the Present Day!

The exhibition will feature original garments, including many rare pieces, from servicemen and women of the two World Wars, the National Service period and beyond, and will include items made as far afield as Australia, Canada and India.

Tours of Brook Farm Camp and the hut conservation work are available daily at 2pm, giving you the chance to see how the camp is developing, and hear about the history of these fascinating First World War buildings.
