New Mill Social Centre - Former World War One Army Hut
New Mill Social Centre - Former World War One Army Hut
At the start of the First Word War an army camp was built at Gadebridge, Hemel Hempstead. At the end of the war it was converted to a V.D. Hospital, and shortly after the war it was closed and the wooden huts were sold off. This is one of those huts.
[Additional Information] Before becoming a social centre it was St Georges Church - in effect a chapel linked to the Tring Parish Church.
New Mill Community Centre, Tring - Former WW1 Army Hut
This hut was originally part of the Army Camp erected at Gadebridge, Hemel Hempstead, in 1915. At the end of the war it became a hospital for soldiers with VD but in 1922 the huts were sold off and this one was re-erected in Tring to serve as St George's Church and be a social centre. It ceased being used as a church circa 1950 and as a social centre in 2012. It was demolished in September 2014 prior to being re-erected in a reconstructed WW1 Army Camp. Six houses are to be erected on the site.
