Former Suttons Institute

On Sunday 24th June 2018, today three committee members of the Hornchurch Aerodrome Historical Society had been given permission from the developers to have a look round the former Suttons Institute, which was also used as home to RAF Hornchurch personnel during the second world war, this site in 1948 was renamed and became St Georges Hospital, the site finally closed in 2011.

The majority of the site is now sadly due for demolition and a new housing development built in its place, although the original building facing onto Suttons Lane will remain, becoming apartments.

As you will see from the photographs these once beautiful iconic 1930’s buildings have become a former shadow of themselves through neglect, vandalism and the developer’s needs.
