Why you might have seen Elveden Forest Center Parcs on TV last night




Channel 5 aired a documentary on the history of Center Parcs last night, and for those paying attention you will have spotted one particular resort.

The Elveden Forest resort, built in 1989, made an appearance.

The site covers 400 acres of land, and, according to the programme, was built on an area that originally housed munitions during the second world war.
