Roffey Park Hospital, 1968. - a Memory of Horsham.
Was a patient at the hospital from Palm Sunday, 1968 for about six weeks. The picture you have in postcard form was the rose garden. I took several photographs in colour, while there, as we had access to the whole of the grounds. will forward copies, when I have traced them.
There is a website AAH "All About Horsham" and through that I was able to trace an article about Beedingwood, where the nurses lived, also St Leonard's Forest which was to the south.
It gave a comprehensive history of the establishment of the place in 1943, it closed in 1981.As well as occupational therapy in what had been the old stables, we were also encouraged to help in the garden, the women were given jobs like pricking out seedlings into trays, for growing on and transplanting, the men worked in the walled kitchen gardens. A considerable amount was grown for the hospitals own use, and another up at Redhill.
