History

Caption for Grange-Over-Sands, Club Union Home C1916

Before becoming a private nursing home, this building was a convalescent home for members of working men's clubs that were affiliated to the Club Union. Members needing to convalesce, usually for a fortnight, applied to their club's committee for a stay at the home. They generally took their wives, and the charge was normally met by the club. Often, this was known as the Miners' Home. It was erected in 1914 (the date appears above the stained glass main doorway in the centre of the building), and was officially opened in 1916. In the grounds is a stone statue of a First World War soldier, given by the Normanton Central Liberal Club - it can be seen from the road. This monument is now listed.

A memory of Grange-Over-Sands

Grange Over Sands,

Hi I have a very old postcard on the then N.E.C. Convalescent Home at Grange-Over-Sands, my father was there in or around the 1930's - he was there there quite a long time till he recovered from his illness. I wonder if it is still there, and if so have they made it into a hotel, or what ever as I would like to visit it this summer Yours sincerely Joyce Gregson
