When Wendover was a maternity hospital, they were handed a letter with very brief account from someone who lived in the building from 1907-1919
This letter has been slightly edited from the original, with some words removed, however please ask if you would like to read the original letter as we have this on-site at Wendover.
Please note the letter refers to the building being the hospital, so you will have to use your imagination a bit.
If anyone knows the layout of Wendover Hospital, please contact us!
It mentions the following; but these are guesses of the locations;
Ground floor labour ward – we believe is Pre-School Art Studio
Patients lounge – Ground floor?
Labour ward – Somewhere in nursery room?
Ward 1 – Somewhere in nursery room?
Ward 3 – Somewhere in nursery room?
As Wendover was previously known as ‘Overndale’ it has been impossible to find any pictures or more information on the building as it was then, so if anyone does have any information prior to the NHS taking over we would love to hear from you!
All we know, is from reading that letter, the building as a residential house but have been spectacular.
