In 1917 the grand house that is Dunham Massey owned by the Stamford family, became one of the 3,300 auxiliary hospitals that were established all over Britain in The First World War.
The National Trust has, for this centenary year, painstakingly recreated the hospital in Dunham Massey. It really is worth a visit. The reception desk issues timed entrance tickets to the house when you check in although once in you can take as much time as you like to wander the house including the hospital rooms. When we visited on Sunday the 13th July there was a lovely brass band playing in the beautiful grounds and the repertoire included some WW1 music which added to the poignancy of the day.
We highly recommend a visit. For more information, follow the link
