Ashurst Hospital, New Forest
Ashurst hospital was once the New Forest Poor Law Institution and is recorded to have had 13 officers and 110 inmates in 1921. It was built for the destitute and needy children and was also renown as a refuge for local tramps who were given a bed for the night. During WWII it was a military hospital and housed many wounded from Dunkirk and later from the blitz on nearby Southampton and casualties were also brought in from Portsmouth. It is now "The Ashurst Centre" as part of the NHS and houses a rehabilitation unit amongst others. The brick building on the left is a chapel.
