'Cadogan House'


This former private hospital, designed with elements of the Old English style of architecture, was constructed circa 1933 for owners Misses Barclay, Bourne and Bell. Misses Bourne and Bell, who were trained nurses, ran another hospital, ‘Ingarfield,’ nearby and lived on those premises, however Miss Barclay may have resided here. The hospital initially had facilities for 30 patients but strong growth in the area saw it extended in 1937. It was praised for its modern design and facilities which included the use of electricity, a bell system, an operating theatre, and a separate ambulance entrance for easy access. The building, which is still known as ‘Cadogan House’, has since been converted into medical chambers.
