Secret Wartime Britain:

With Colin Philpott

1.45pm for 2pm start

On the 19th of August at 1400 Todmorden u3a will welcome the author Colin Philpott who will give a Zoom talk entitled  'Secret Wartime Britain'.

During the Second World War, thousands of sites across Britain were requisitioned to support the war effort. Additionally, countless others were built from scratch regardless of cost. Often the purpose of these locations was concealed, even from those living close by. Colin has compiled a fascinating collection of examples of hidden places all over the country, many of which still exist today, albeit often now used for different purposes. 

They include underground factories, storage sites and headquarters; spy and communication centres; interrogation and POW camps; dummy sites; research facilities for chemical and atomic weapons; treasure stores in stately homes and even royal retreats in the event of invasion. Colin's talk reveals where these sites are and examines how successfully they were kept secret. 

The talk is free to all current Todmorden members who will recieve a link. If you are not a u3a member but would like to attend the talk you can do so free by requesting an invitation at www.u3atod.org.uk or contact info@u3atod.org.uk
