    Default Le Court Care Home, Liss - July 2009


    Visited with Jim and Duffman. Had a very leisurely 2 hours or so here, decided on the spur of the moment to to have a look since it's only a short drive from me.



    History
    In the 1940s Le Court House was purchased by Group-Captain Sir Leonard Cheshire and in 1948 started to take in people suffering from incurable diseases. Le Court House became the first of a worldwide network of hospice for the incurably ill and became know as the Cheshire Homes.

    Le Court closed in September 2007 after failing to keep the building up to scratch with modern standards.

    Just a heads up in case anyone was thinking of visiting, Le Court is now a big pile of rubble.
