Military auxiliary

In 1914 the local Voluntary Aid Detachment established an auxiliary hospital in an iron hut on the corner of Green Lane and Hallowell Road.  The building had originally been St John's Presbyterian Church, founded in 1905, which had recently moved to its newly built premises in Hallowell Road.

The Hospital closed in 1918 and, in May 1919, the hut and its outbuildings were taken over by the Northwood War Memorial Committee, who converted it into the initial Northwood and Pinner Cottage Hospital with 12 beds.

Present status (August 2010)

The precise site of the original 'tin' hut is unknown and the area has long since been redeveloped.
