Here 's what to expect on Sunday 19 November from 10am to 3pm.
This month, we will be commemorating 'World War II at Hylands' where you will be able to read more about in our social history exhibition in the Library.
Essex Historic Military Vehicle Association
Outside Hylands House, we will be joined by the Essex Historic Military Vehicle Association (EHMVA or Essex HMVA), one of the fastest growing military Associations in the UK, who help preserve military history, vehicles, and artefacts. They will be displaying jeeps typical of the type used by British Special Forces – an Airbourne Jeep and a Popski Private Army jeep.
We're delighted the EHMVA will be with us this month, and if you're familiar with our history or have attended one of our tours, you'll enjoy the significance having jeeps in Hylands House has! Learn more about it by the Grand Staircase.
