I'm going to have some fun at
These Photographs are by Sister Laura Harrington, who worked at Chipping Norton for many years until her retirement in 1965, thanks also to Joanne who arranged for the photographs to be added to the site. The many snapshots show life at Penhurst to be both home and fun for the children, and if some of the photographs are blurred is is due to the children moving to fast. The NCH branch Penhurst is at Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire. Starting life in the early 1900's it provided specialist care for the disabled children that had been admitted into the NCH. In 1930 it was a home for 92 handicapped children. In the 1970's housed 52, and in 2006 it is still providing specialist care for a small number of physically handicapped children. Affectionately nicknamed ‘Chippy’, this branch developed from two large houses acquired in 1903, to which an adjacent house and lodge were added soon afterwards. At the centre is the chapel of the branch, with its memorial to John Buchanan, the most famous old boy of Chipping Norton who, although born without hands, gained international reputation as an artist.
