Wharton Hall 1916 – 1918

At the outbreak of the First World War, the Red Cross secured buildings, equipment and staff to set up temporary hospitals to cope with wounded men returning from the front. The Wharton Hall; at the bottom of Green Road in Skelton was just such a hospital. Provided by the Wharton family of Skelton Castle, this picture shows the Hall in 1915 ready to receive patients.
