Stockwood House

Stockwood has many historical associations. The land was once owned by the Rotheram family, but in 1708 the estate was purchased by Richard Crawley.

Stockwood House was completed in 1740 at a cost of £60,000 by John Crawley. The estate included walled gardens supplying fruit and vegetables for the house, as well as wonderful roses. Stockwood was the home of the Crawley family until 1940 when the house became a hospital.

During the First World War, the house was the home of North Midland Divisional Veterinary Hospital, plus Mobile Veterinary Sections 911 - 1041.
