During the First World War, this Georgian house, set in a magnificent deer-park, was transformed into a military hospital, becoming a sanctuary from the trenches for 282 soldiers.
To mark the centenary the clock is turning back at Dunham Massey, allowing you to discover what life was like for the patients and how the war changed everything for those who lived and worked at Dunham. As in the war years, family treasures will once again be stored in the Great Gallery, with a special exhibition showcasing some of the most fascinating objects in this significant collection.
The stunning garden has something to delight throughout the seasons with woodland flowers in spring, vibrant summer borders, and heavy hydrangea heads as the days shorten into Autumn. The deer park provides a tranquil place to stroll and watch the wildlife, with the added bonus of a recently restored water powered sawmill with working machinery. Free guided tours (of the park and gardens), family quizzes, trails and an imaginative events programme bring the fascinating history of this National Trust treasure to life.
