Land Girls celebrated at renovated Great Barn
A WOMEN’S Land Army event is being planned for the Great Barn, in Harmondsworth.
The historic venue at Manor Court will display war time photos and exhibits on Saturday, September 19 from 10am to 5pm.
At 3pm there will be a re-enactment of the world of the Women’s Land Army preparing their horse for a day’s work.
Music will be provided by the Band of the Middlesex Yeomanry (Duke of Cambridge Hussars) in the early afternoon. The day will also be an opportunity for visitors to view The Great Barn following extensive repair work and the Church of St Mary’s the Virgin, which dates from 1067.
The Friends of the Great Barn are keen to hear from any surviving ‘Land Girls’ or their families, particularly if they have any photographs which could feature in the exhibition.
