The centre was built in 1864 by John Cowlishaw. The building was initially a private house, then in the 1920s it was turned into a hostel for students at the university. Since the 1950s it has been used as a Royal Infirmary, nursing sisters home, private nursing home and a nursing clinic.


Blind Veterans UK took over in 2005 to give our blind veterans a training centre in the north to help those who did not want to take the journey down to Brighton.
