The Springbok Estate

Springbok HouseFollowing World War II the people of South Africa collected a large sum of money and gave it to the NUS with the instructions to build a living memorial to those seamen who gave so much to keep the shipping lanes open during the conflict.

Sachel Court in Alfold, Surrey had been leased during the war by the NUS and it decided that the building and the surrounding area was an ideal place to set up memorial.

In 1947 Sachel Court became the new home of the Society, now named Springbok.

The Springbok Estate enables Care Ashore to offer a comprehensive range of facilities in a spacious and beautifully rural setting whilst having excellent links to major conurbations such as Guildford.
