Sanctuary from the Trenches
During the First World War, this Georgian house, set in a magnificent deer-park, was transformed into a military hospital, becoming a sanctuary from the trenches for almost 300 soldiers.
To mark the centenary we have turned the clock back. Discover what life was like for the patients and how members of the Grey family helped injured soldiers to recuperate. Spend time in the ward, nurses’ station, and operating theatre as you experience the Stamford Hospital as it once was.
Dunham Massey has one of the North’s great gardens, with plenty to inspire throughout the year, including a stunning rose garden and one of Britain’s finest winter gardens.
This season is the final chance for visitors to experience the house presented as the Stamford Hospital. Please note that we will be operating a timed token system and may have limited availability on tickets to the house and hospital during busy periods. We look forward to seeing you soon.
The Stamford Hospital is open Saturday - Wednesday until 11 November 2015
Join us for this unique event and mark the closing of the Stamford Hospital. To remember the day peace was declared, experience the hospital by night with new performances inspired by a moving and humorous account of Armistice, written by one of the nurses who worked at the hospital.
