Newton Chambers

Recommended Posts

I used to visit to look after the X-ray unit in the medical centre it was in a bunker type building with reinforced doors. Very strange.

Hi jiginc,

The medical center at Newton Chambers was built in wartime. It was called the Casualty Clearance Center and was put underground to protect against air-raids. It was reputed to be bomb proof. 200 yds further up the road was a factory making tanks so air-raids were expected at any time. There is always an explanation to the strangest things.

I remember it being called the C.T.C (Casualty treatment centre)
