Cottage for tuberculosis sufferers, former Barnardo’s home, Barkingside
The Barnardo’s home at Barkingside featured cottages (in which girls could live in a family-like environment) around three large greens. On the death of Thomas Barnardo, a memorial statue was erected at the point where the three greens met. Only one of the greens survives now; the cottages on the north side are occupied by Barnardo’s administrative staff and those on the south side have been converted to housing for the elderly. At the north-east corner of the surviving green is the children’s church, which was paid for by an anonymous donor in memory of her parents and is specifically designed for children (the pews are child-sized and the images in the stained glass are of Bible stories featuring children).
This particular cottage was designed for children with tuberculosis: in line with the medical theories of the day, it has extra-large windows to increase the amount of fresh air and sunlight reaching the residents.
