Hundreds of children were sent to the safety of Welshpool and our surrounding area during World War II and now the National Trust is keen to hear their personal stories.

A major two-year exhibition is being created at Powis Castle called ‘Worlds Apart in War’ which will feature real life stories and experiences from those who called it home during this horrific time.

Many came from Merseyside with many working on the local farms as ‘land girls’ to support the war effort.

“National Trust Wales is looking for people who remember their time in the area to come forward with recollections and stories as part of a two-year ‘Worlds Apart in War’ exhibition at Powis Castle and Gardens,” said a spokesperson.

“We are looking for people to share their stories so they can record some of them and add them to the exhibition over the next two years.”

The aim is to give visitors to Powis Castle the chance to learn more about the local area during the Second World War, as well as the role it played in the history of the people of Merseyside.

To share your story, visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/powis-castle, email trust@wearecowshed.co.uk or call 01938 551929.
