Culver Cliff and the Isle of Wight at War

  • This event has passed.

Tim Wander

Thursday 11th October 17:30 - 18:30 | Northwood House

For a brief moment in time this place was amongst the most important and most secret places on the entire south coast of England. It was guarded by huge guns, set in massive sentinels of concrete. Behind them, hundreds of men and women, working with the latest technologies kept watch for every hour of the entire Second World War to keep this nation safe. Tim’s lecture takes you back to the dark days of 1940. The Home Guard stands alone and Churchill was prepared to commit everything to stop the invasion of the Isle of Wight.
