The Cripples and Industrial School, Winchmore

Winchmore, London

(1851 - 1927)

The Cripples and Industrial School was established by Miss Caroline Blunt in 1851 in Marylebone Road, London, where it remained for 60 years until 1911 when the Home was relocated to Winchmore Hill, London. The House had been built in 1613 and was surrounded by large grounds through which the New River ran.

In 1927 the Home was transferred to the Society and became Halliwick School for Girls, Winchmore Hill.
