Heritage Open Days - World Healing Centre

World Healing Centre

Tours of our fabulous Edwardian building and gardens completed in 1911.

The building was commissioned by Jane Higgin who lived in the neighbouring house. She passed in 1912 and left the property to her husband, Frederick Ash. In 1913 it is recorded that John Brown then resided in the property. The Millington family moved in 1921 and remained here until 1937. Eliza Broadbent and Alice Clark then briefly owned the house between 1937 and 1939 before it became a Camp Reception Centre for HM Forces during World War II. During the years 1947 and 1952 archives show that the property was occupied by Bertha Cameron and Evelyn Griffin and subsequently by Joyce Roscoe. In 1952, Mandus Nyquist, the founder of the World Healing Centre bought ‘Calderbank’, as it was known, and the Charity was set up and flourished. The Centre has now been beautifully refurbished and is very busy with a myriad choice of services.
