Can you help rediscover the story of the WW1 hospital at Trent Bridge?

PUBLISHED:

Did you know that, back in 1914, there were two Pavilions at Trent Bridge cricket ground – and that, soon after the outbreak of the First World War, the buildings became a convalescent hospital that eventually closed in 1919?

Many West Bridgford people would have had connections with the Pavilion Hospital – as a member of staff, as a volunteer, as a shopkeeper providing supplies, or as a local resident who offered accommodation to nurses or other hospital staff.

The heritage volunteers at Trent Bridge are researching this story and they are very keen to hear from anybody whose relatives, friends or neighbours had a connection with the hospital. They would also be delighted to hear from anybody who has any photographs or memorabilia associated with the hospital.

If you can help, please send your contact details to heritage@nottsccc.co.uk and one of the volunteers will be in touch with you shortly.
