Flashback Friday: Convalescent Home at Wolfe House c. 1913

Currently Wolfe House Residential Care Home, the house on Wolf’s Row, was originally built in the 1800s, when Limpsfield appears to have been awash with auxiliary hospitals and convalescent homes!  The Limpsfield Convalescent Home took in injured soldiers during WW1. The original building was destroyed in 1921 and the current one built on its site, continuing as a convalescent home until at least the 1950s.


Now the well-established and well-reputed Wolfe House Residential Care Home, that looks like a much more cheerful place than in the 1913 photo, it offers a permanent home or short-term respite care for the elderly.



PS. Why is Wolf’s Row spelt without the “e”?!
