Hougoumont Farm and the Battle of Waterloo »


    Hougoumont now

    WELCOME.  PROJECT HOUGOUMONT was initially set up as a charity dedicated to raising the funds needed to restore the buildings of Hougoumont Farm on the battlefield of Waterloo.

    This was achieved in time for the 200th Anniversary of the Battle in 2015.

    Now the Project aims to continue promoting knowledge of the battle and ongoing research on the history of the fascinating campaign.

    This site now contains a mass of material, including memoirs of eyewitnesses; images of the battle and also the battlefield and how it has changed over the last two centuries; recent battlefield archaeology and visitor information. We aim to make this the 'go to' website on Waterloo.
