Churchill's British Resistance - The Auxiliary Units

 

Coleshill Memorial Trees

 
Please Note: The Coleshill House site and grounds are owned by the National Trust. The woods and grounds of the house are all strictly private and access is limited to set days a year. See our events page for their official open days. Attempting to access the site outside of these times is not only trespassing but could damage the future of our work and relationship with the Trust and villagers. Please respect this.

It is only fitting that the Coleshill Estate, the Auxiliers GHQ and Training Ground, was chosen to remember them by the planting of eight Memorial Trees.  The National Trust now owns the land and cares for the trees. They can be inspected by obtaining permission from the Estate Office which is where the Memorial Book can be seen.

The trees have numbers on but no dedications – the dedications read as follows:
