Comments for Hargate Hall's blog News and Events at Hargate Hall - self catering and wedding venue in the Peak District Sat, 10 Feb 2018 16:38:48 +0000 hourly 1 Comment on History of Hargate Hall by Gareth Watson Sat, 10 Feb 2018 16:38:48 +0000 My father, Ray Watson, who’s now 92 was at Hargate Hall for 6 months towards the end of 1943 when he was in the army convalescing from an injury sustained a few weeks after he joined up. He was doing is basic training in Chesterfield and had been assigned fatigues, peeling potatoes, with other men when the knife of the man next to him slipped and badly cut my father’s right hand. After surgery he was sent to Hargate Hall to regain the use of his hand. He says it was Red Cross-run and there was a uniform for injured soldiers of a blue suit with a white shirt and a red tie. He did activities like basket weaving and bowls to get his hand back to use. He doesn’t remember injured RAF man being there but it’s possible. There were a mix of men from different units, some with battlefield injuries. He didn’t stay in the Hall itself but in huts in the grounds. When his hand had recovered he completed his basic training and went on to serve as a Smoke Screen operator and later a Prisoner of War Camp guard.

Comment on History of Hargate Hall by Hargatehall Wed, 08 Mar 2017 20:06:22 +0000 Hello. I know that Hargate Hall was used by the red cross during the 2nd word war, and that injured RAF pilots were cared for here. Beyond that, I have not found out much. The Red Cross archives that would have covered Hargate use, were destroyed in fire in the 60’s / 70’s I believe. It is certainly feasible that children were also looked after here, but I have not seen anything to that effect. Also Wormhill did have at least 2 blacksmiths in the 1940’s and there is still one today.
If I find out any more I will post it here. In the meant time good luck with your searches.

The Hall is amazing as it s split into lots of apartments all of which have their own private lounge and kitchen.

Comment on History of Hargate Hall by Jenny Brown Mon, 06 Mar 2017 20:27:37 +0000 I am currently trying to help my Father in law. He believes that he stayed in a convalescent home for children during 1940/1941in Wormhill. He accompanied his sister from their home in Stockport. He remembers there being about 20 children and him walking to a blacksmith. He believes the building was used in the war for RAF pilots who had been badly burnt. My searches have led me to Hargate Hall although nothing specifically about children staying there. We’d appreciate any pointers. Thank you.
