Reference Notes

Maunsworth House was an 18th century stately home, requisitioned by the British Military during the Second World War, and used as a Communications Research Centre.

Decades after the war, the base was still in use as a classified military establishment, however, a need to restructure and modernise led to the moth-balling of the House, and an entirely new Research Facility was built a short distance away, which still carried the name Maunsworth as a reminder of the Project's history.
