The Windermere Children

A summer's night in 1945. A coachload of children is in transit to the Calgarth Estate in Lake Windermere.

They carry only the clothes they wear and a few meagre possessions, along with the physical and psychological scars of all they have suffered. But the children are also excited, for the war is over and there is always hope that the future will be kinder to them than the past. The British government granted up to 1000 children a refuge, a place to rehabilitate and grow strong again. 300 of these children were brought to live in Lake Windermere for four months, and for many of them came the hope that the UK might become their future home.
