In July 2021, Waterloo Uncovered was thrilled to be involved in ‘Stansted Unlocked’ at Stansted House in West Sussex on the 10th and 11th July 2021.  It was a weekend extravaganza combining cricket, history and fun! Visitors were treated to a wealth of historic interest and activities with displays that revealed the colourful history of the Estate and the Ponsonby family including the sword that General Sir William Ponsonby used at the Battle of Waterloo.  Outside in the Park, the Waterloo theme continued with Reenactors from the Napoleonic period showing off their Cavalry and Musketry skills and demonstrating what it was like to live in a military camp on the eve of the battle. We had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed meeting everyone there enjoying the Waterloo themed fun!
