A little history

The 1940′s weekend aims to show off all the heritage features that still remain in the house and gardens, as well as showing the important role Lupton House played in WW2 and in particular the D-Day landings of 1944.

Lupton House was used by the US Army from 1943 as a sub-area headquarters for the training of troops for Operation Overlord (D-Day). Lupton House became Camp K6, in Marshalling Area K. Lupton had accommodation for 2,500 troops and 355 vehicles.
