The Manor Hospital and Manor walk

See where the last fortified line to defend London was built against German invasion. Hear how important the Manor Hospital was in WW1, when it was visited by George V and other members of the royal family, and how the nursing staff dealt with a V1 in the Second. Find out how the mental hospitals changed Epsom forever
