Commemorate the First World War centenary at Dunham Massey

Altrincham, Cheshire

Mark the centenary of WWI at Dunham Massey by hearing the stories of Stamford Military Hospital in which 282 soldiers were treated.

This year will be a different experience to Dunham Massey’s usual elegance.

The beautiful Edwardian interiors have gone and the clock has been turned back to 1917, when the Great Hall became the Stamford convalescent Hospital.

Spend the day discovering what life was like for the patients and how the war changed everything for those who lived and worked at Dunham.

Spend time in the ward, recreation room and operating theatre as you learn how injuries were treated 100 years ago.

View the photographs, read the letters, play the games and experience the Stamford Hospital as it once was.
