Essex Land Girls at Thoby Priory, Mountnessing?

A query from a correspondent: 

... during course of my research for Essex Land Girls, my next book (, I came across a ref to Thoby Priory being used as a hostel towards the end of WW2.  Just wondered if you – or someone you could put me in contact with – would know any more about this i.e. any info re dates, numbers, any details of the girls or where they worked etc.  Not come across it elsewhere (i.e. ERO or the IWM etc.).  If you can help, much appreciated and of course acknowledged.  (An image might also help?  jpeg min 1mb – or anything else re land girls in the area, either war ... just a thought.)

thanks, Dee
