The Royal Family
During the Second World War plans were drawn up to protect the Royal Family.
In the event of an invasion, Paris House in Woburn would have been used as a safe house for the King and Queen.
It was used by the Intelligence section, Department Electra House, and had a number of high profile visitors during the war, including General de Gaulle, the Queen's brother and an SS Officer who had defected to the allies.
In addition an underground tunnel was contrsucted from Paris House to the Milton Bryan campsite. The tunnel is approx 2km in length and the entrance (now secured) used to come out near the Pond.
This would have been used in the event of an attack on Paris House.
