Geocache Description:


In 1921 David Lloyd George bought a 60 acre estate at Churt in Surrey. He built a large house with panoramic views of the valley below and named it Bron y De. After he resigned as Prime Minister in 1922 he retreated often to Churt. From 1930 Lloyd George withdrew gradually from the political scene and devoted himself to developing his estate and writing his War Memoirs. Over the years he bought more of the surrounding land to expand his estate. Much of the land was poor sandy soil covered with scrub and heather. With characteristic determination LG turned it into fertile land, installed irrigation systems and planted orchards of apple, plum and other fruits trees. He also grew vegetables which he sold from a farm shop. He also had a large apiary and sold honey to Harrods and Fortnum & Masons labelled "From the estate of David Lloyd George OM MP." Lloyd George is still fondly remembered in Churt.
