Memories of High Lodge anyone?

By   April 11, 2018

As part of the Trailing the Hidden Heritage of High Lodge, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, volunteers are investigating the history of the site.

They are seeking photos/memories of the area before it before it became Forestry Commission.

See an article in the Theford and Brandon Times for more details.

High Lodge is of particular interest to Santon Downham as during the First World War the Canadian Army Timber Corps were billetted in Downham Hall and a Timber Railway ran from High Lodge to a sawmill in Santon Downham.

If you have any photographs or memories to share, email or call 0300 067 4400.
