Keeping Hampstead Special

In the late l980s developers applied for permission to raze New End Hospital to the ground. Once again a fine Victorian building seemed doomed to destruction by a failure to uphold planning law.

But not this time.

New End Hospital’s classical form still graces the streets of Hampstead.
And why?

Because a long, hard and ultimately successful battle was fought to save it by a working group of our members.

From that group the Town Committee was established as a formal sub-committee of the Society: a dedicated group of volunteers who work to protect the interests of Hampstead Town.
