Welland Park continues the NHS theme with the road names

Welland Park is Longhurst Group’s new development in Spalding, Lincolnshire. The development is named after the town's former NHS hospital. It offers two and three bedroom homes on a Shared Ownership and Affordable Rent basis.

Our new development in Spalding will continue its NHS theme after we received confirmation of its postal addresses.

Built on the site of the town’s former Welland Hospital, our Welland Park development will comprise 36 two and three bedroom homes which will be available for Shared Ownership and affordable rent.

Keen to honour the site’s NHS past, we chose to retain the name Welland in the development name, and now we’ve gone one step further.

Two of the road names on the development will now be known as Bevan Grove and Beckingham Close – both giving a nod to the history of the NHS.

Stephanie Dannatt, New Homes Officer, said: “With Welland Park being built on such an iconic site in Spalding, we were keen to retain some of that history and heritage and ensure there was an ongoing link to its NHS past.

“We decided to call the development Welland Park to make sure the name of the hospital lived on, but we also wanted to do more.

“That’s why we’ve made sure we have secured the name of two of the roads to also have links to the NHS.

“Bevan Grove is a nod to the founder of the NHS - Aneurin Bevan – while Beckingham Close is named after Sylvia Beckingham who was the first person to ever be treated by the NHS in 1948 as a 13-year-old girl.

“We hope that by maintaining an NHS theme throughout the development we are continuing to honour the fantastic work that has been – and continues to be done – by our wonderful NHS staff across the country, as well as the local links.”
