Earl's House School (now Earl's House Hospital), Lanchester Road, Durham
War memorial plaque
Type: War Memorial
Earl’s House (or Earlshouse) Industrial School closed in 1922, and became Earlshouse Sanatorium. It remained a sanatorium until the 1960s when the building became part of the Hospital. At Earl’s House School there was once a war memorial plaque.
In recent years the memorial plaque was rescued from a skip and subsequently refurbished by Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Trust. Relocated to the entrance foyer of Lanchester Road Hospital, adjoining the site of the industrial school, the plaque was officially unveiled on Friday 7 November 2014.
