Wardour is uneconomic'

vARDOUR Castle at Tisbury, Wiltshire, taken over a year or so ago by the Cheshire Foundation as a home for the incurable sick. is to be given up. A recent survey has shown that a large sum of money would be needed to make the roof and fabric safe. The Ministry of Works offered to pay part of the cost provided that the Foundation paid the rest.

Although they were prepared to pay for the coat of installing

drainage, electricity, heating, plumbing and other amenities for the patients the committee in a statement last week said that it does not feel justified in spending money on the fabric of the building. The committee has therefore decided that the home shall be transferred from Wardour Castle as soon as a more suitable house can be made ready, The Cheshire Foundation, while thanking tile many friends of Wardour for their help over the past year or so, emphasise that the closing must not be taken as a failure of the home hut only of the economic impossibility of maintaining the home at Wardour.
