Uncover the medieval landscape of Horton and the long-forgotten moated manor house and ancient barn. See how the landscape was affected by the Victorian policy of keeping patients with mental illnesses out of sight. See where the last defence line to defend London was built against the German invasion. Hear how important the Manor Hospital was in WW1, and how the nursing staff dealt with a V1 in the Second. Find out how the mental hospitals changed Epsom forever.

Please meet by the pond on Stamford Green.
