Great to see Booths Hall camp included! I hope colleagues can find other photos of the camp, which was a wonderful experience (first time camping). Apart from the open latrines and the quasi-solid porridge….

It was an important innovation at the time, because it was closer to Manchester than the other camps, and so much cheaper.

It made it accessible to those of us without well-off parents.

Thanks Michael - I will be on the look out for more images of Booths Hall. I believe we have some undigitised photographs in the archives, so I will aim to try and add them to the site. Watch this space! Best wishes, Rachel
