The Glebe Nursing Home
105a Camlet Way, Hadley Common, Barnet EN4 0NJ
In 1941 Lady Carnarvon established a nursing home in The Glebe, a large property in Hadley Common.
The nursing home admitted maternity, surgical and medical patients at a cost of 8 guineas (£8.40) a week. It had an operating theatre with modern equipment.
It closed in 1943 due to financial pressures.
Present status (February 2019)
In the early 1950s the property became Glebe House Nursing Home for NHS patients. It closed in 1971.
Today it is Glebe House - a private residence.

The driveway leading to Glebe House.
Although this is Glebe House, the sign of the gatepost is for Dolphin Manor. The driveway was altered after this photograph was taken and a new entrance way created for Glebe house.
At one time the property was renamed Ashirwad House.
