Cholwell House Home for Babies, Temple Cloud, Somerset

The Cholwell House Home for Babies was opened by the Waifs and Strays Society in 1941 at Upper Bristol Road, Temple Cloud, Somerset. It was used as a wartime evacuation home for children from the Wick House Nursery at Brislington.

The home was closed in 1945 and the children briefly transferred to the Wick House Nursery at Weston Super Mare, before returning to Brislington in 946.

The property was later used as local council offices. In more recent times, a nursing home occupied the premises.
