Beyond the gate is the Star & Garter home, formerly a nursing home run by the Royal Star & Garter Homes charity to provide care for people who had served in the armed forces. The home was closed in 2013 and sold to a housing developer. The Royal Star & Garter Homes have moved to a new, purpose-built site a few miles away in Surbiton.
