A (very) brief history of Dunham Massey

Visitors to Dunham in 2014 will find out about the story of the Stamford Hospital, Dunham’s role as a First World War auxiliary hospital from April 1917 to January 1919. This was an important, but brief, part of Dunham’s history. Take a look below to find out about the hall before and after the hospital years.
