The Grange Hotel

I worked at the Grange Hotel from 1983 until 1986. I lived in Grange for another six years at The Cottage, Graythwaite Manor. I left Grange in 1992 with my family when we moved to Australia. Enjoyed seeing the old photos of Grange, especially the one of the Grange Hotel.

My Grandad

History

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.
