About the Event

Exhibition about the role Woodhall Spa played in the battle for Arnhem. An action in WW2 immortalised in the film ‘A Bridge Too Far’. Based here, in Woodhall, was the Airlanding Brigade which fought at Arnhem. This Brigade went into battle using gliders landing close to the Dutch town. The Brigade was based in hutted camps just to the east of Woodhall with the headquarters of the units that comprised the force utilising hotels and large houses within Woodhall itself. The exhibition tells the story of the units and men of this Brigade and their time here in Woodhall.
