|New memorial dedicated to the boys from the Banstead Cottage Homes (Beechholme)|
|Known in earlier times as the Kensington and Chelsea Cottage
Homes, the residential school was sited along Fir Tree Road, Nork. In later
years it was known as Beechholme.
The memorial pictured on the right was erected to remember the young men and
staff from the school who gave their lives for their country in
The Great War. More details and a full list of all the men are included in
a small booklet available for download here.

AGAINST THE ODDS - the complete story of the legendary 'Wooden Horse' escape and the men who made it happen will be available shortly.
