PROJECT HOUGOUMONT is a charity dedicated to raising the funds needed to restore the buildings of Hougoumont Farm on the battlefield of Waterloo. The extraordinary courage of the soldiers who fought here had a decisive effect on the outcome of the battle. Then, for nearly 200 years it remained a working farm, so little changed that even today it is easy to visualise the dramatic events of that fateful day. Today, however, this haunting place is falling into ruin and must be saved. Please take a moment to watch this wonderful introduction by Peter Snow. . .
