Welcome to the St Luke’s Hospital Heritage Project!

This is the research website for the Guildford Union Workhouse, Guildford War Hospital, Warren Road Hospital and St Luke’s Hospital.


Now Open! A new exhibition at the Spike – From Workhouse to Hospital – the story of St Luke’s

a snapshot of life at St Luke’s in the 1950s

The launch night of our new exhibition was a tremendous success with 90 invited guests ranging in age from 12 to 93!

We were delighted to welcome ex-staff who trained and worked at St Luke’s in the 1950′s and 60′s, some travelling from as far away as Norfolk. Diana Lockyer-Nibbs, Mayor of Guildford and a long-term supporter of the Spike Heritage Centre, officially opened the exhibition and retired consultant, Richard Notley gave a fascinating keynote speech.
