My Mother's family was in the camp. They came from East Africa on the Carnarvon Castle which arrived in Southampton on May 4, 1948. They moved to Great Harwood (spelling?) in about 1954-1955 and came to the United States in 1956.
My Mother's memories are vague, would like to learn more about this camp.
I have been searching for information about Polish Hospital No 6 Diddington St Neots Huntingdonshire where I was born in 1947. During my searches I was amazed to find Lowther Park was a resettlement camp till 1955. My amazement is is due to the fact that I have owned a static caravan on this site for the past 20 years or so and have never come across any indication of the camp or any mention of it in the local history. There is still evidence in the woods south of the camp of war time activity, where tanks were parked on concrete slabs and hidden under the canopy of the wood. My first caravan was parked on just such a concrete slab, but located within the confines of the camp. Now that I am aware of the Parks history I will make enquiries and see if the local newspapers have any archive material. I can also post photos of the park as it is today. I am sure there will be nothing left of the original building on the site. Meanwhile if any member or reader has any information on the Diddington connection I would be very grateful.
