ContextThe hospital was built 1869-1870 by James Cropper in memory of his wife Fanny. In 1908 the Westmorland County Hospital was built by public subscription to extend the work of the older institution. It was taken over by the National Health Service in 1948. From 1870 until 1948 it was entirely dependent on public subscriptions and gifts.
