Milton Hill House as Section Hospital

Milton Hill House has been extensively modernized during its lifetime to suit the requirements of new owners and new users, but most of the work followed the sale of the house to Sir Mortimer Singer in 1912.  A detailed history of Milton Hill House and Manor can be found here (courtesy of De Vere Venues).    

During World War 1, Sir Mortimore Singer turned the house into a military hospital - General Hospital No 3, Southern Command.  The soldiers received treatment for their wounds and were able to take full advantage of the peaceful rural setting whilst treated.
