Margaret Laurie House
Margaret Laurie House
Built in 1880 as Mrs Kitto's Free Convalescent Home, which had been founded in 1872 in nearby Bletchingley, before moving here.

Mrs Kitto was the wife of The Revd J Fenwick Kitto, variously Vicar of St Matthias, Poplar (from 1867 to ?), Vicar of St Mary, Whitechapel (from ? to 1885(?)), Rector of St Dunstan, Stepney (from 1885 to 1886) and (from 1886 to 1903) Rector of St Martins-in-the-Fields in London. She established the convalescent home for the poor of East London, presumably prompted by her time living there.

The Home later became an annexe to the London Hospital, when it was known as Croft Home.

It now serves as an Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, offering short term residential care and support for people in East Surrey and Elmbridge & Mid Surrey who have severe and enduring mental illness, to help them learn and regain lost life skills as part of their recovery journey.
