HAROLDS WOOD HOSPITAL & MORGUE ROMFORD -2011


Early days
the site first became into Medical use in 1909 when the Grange, a large Victorian house built in 1884 was purchases and used as a convalescent home for patients. Primarily for children.
In the next 30 years the hospital grew building by building with demand within the area.
In WWII it served as an emergency hospital for the wounded,
then after further expansion in 1963 the Hospital became a District General Hospital.
It eventually closed on 13 December 2006.

Future intensions
Countryside Properties have been granted planning consent, despite strong local protest
to build 810 homes and 90 apartments and also the refurbishment and preservation of the Grange now a grade two listed building, which will also be converted into 15 homes.

The final breath
as part of the agreement, Countryside Properties has promised to give 3 million of funding to the schools in the area and for health and transport facilities.
Nothing like a little sweetener?
