Maresfield Park

The seat of Prince Munster

This is a very nice little church - evidently very old. Gets crowded out every Sunday

This is the main entrance to the camp.

This was formerly the residence of a German Prince who cleared out about 2 days before the war. It is not far away from our office.

Another view of the house- It is now used as the Brigade office
