Description

WWI Hospitals Centenary Walk

35,000 soldiers were treated in Exeter during the First World War, and this walk will trace three of the buildings which, in association with the Red Cross, were converted into temporary hospitals and also the buildings in and around Southernhay used to support the service. We will also visit the railway station (Queen Street) where the ambulance trains arrived from Southampton and the sick and wounded were collected for transfer to hospitals around the city.
