The Hertfordshire Convalescent Home – West Hill Road. 1907.

At a public meeting held at Shire Hall, Hertford on 13 January 1875, the Reverend F Burnside (Rector of Hertingfordbury) presented a scheme that would provide a convalescent home for the poor of the county. On Thursday 28 October 1880 the Hertfordshire Seaside Convalescent Home at St. Leonards-on-sea, Sussex was formally opened by Her Royal Highness Princess Christian. The money for the scheme had been provided by voluntary subscriptions by the people of Hertfordshire. The home received people for periods of convalescence and recuperative holidays. It was a non-profit making charity run by a voluntary committee and was not part of the National Health Service. In 1982 the home was sold and the money remaining was invested and used to send convalescents to appropriate surroundings under the Hertfordshire Convalescent Trust.
