Black & White imageUndated. View shows Weetwood Grange, a Grade II listed building off Weetwood Lane dating from 1861 and now converted to flats. This large residential house was used as a convalescent home for the girls injured in the explosion at the Barnbow National Filling Factory in 1916. A "Comforts Fund" had been raised for the girls and the house was leased for a period of 2 years by the committee of this fund. Afterwards it became a custom to send women workers who were suffering from ailments due to the nature of the work they were engaged in at Barnbow to the house for a 3 or 4 week rest.
