Here’s one I’ve been trying to feature for a couple of weeks now but lack of time has prevented me from doing so – you’ll remember a few weeks ago, we uncovered the fascinating story of homeless families taking vacant possession of an ex-army camp at Linley Woods, part of a much larger movement of ‘Squatters’ across the UK in the immediate aftermath of World War 2.
That story provoked much interest and some material I’ve yet to got through – but in the meantime, Malcolm Clarke who set the ball rolling sent me the above map to feature here and see if it jogged any memories.
The map may not be dimensionally accurate as it was originally photographed at an angle, and I’ve flattened the image to make it more legible.
Thank you for your help – I am not that good on the computer but I will persevere.
I think I have managed to attach the map of linley camp, if you can put it on your page then I will write an article about it.
Malcolm, that’s a wonderful thing – you did just fine. Sorry for the delay, but your contribution is very much appreciated. This is a fascinating bit of hitherto undiscussed history which I feel deserves – and will reward – further exploration.
Does Malcolm’s map jog your memory at all? Feel free to contribute what you know: comment here or mail me… BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
