Blencathra Centre
Blencathra Centre
Built in 1898 as the Blencathra Sanatorium for Tuberculosis where the fresh air was considered an essential part of the treatment. During the 1940s/50s the number of patients declined and the hospital became a long stay home for the eldery. In 1975 after being empty for several years it became self catering holiday accommodation. Finally in 1995 it was opened by David Bellamy as a Field Centre.
