Winsford Hospital, Halwill Junction, Halwill - Torridge

Winsford Centre was built as a cottage hospital in 1899, designed by Charles Voysey and founded by a local landowner. The NHS closed the hospital in 1998 and it was bought by the Winsford Trust. Since then it has been run as a day centre and community resource. Historic England grant aid led to the production of a Conservation Management Plan, options appraisal and costed condition survey in 2012. A Heritage Lottery Fund grant has been given to develop a project to restore the building in conjunction with the Landmark Trust who have taken on the ownership of the building.
