General information
AddressStonestile Lane

Hazelhurst is a large ​building​ in Stonestile Lane that was constructed around 1850. In 1926, the National Union of Printing and Paper workers moved its convalescent home into the ​building​, a move possibly influenced by The Hermitage convalescent home in Holmesdale Gardens which was run by the Printers Medical Aid and Sanatoria Association. The Union renamed the ​building​ to the 'Alf Evans Memorial Convalescent Home'. By 1959, the Union moved out into premises in Bexhill. [1]

Being put up for sale in 1963, BUPA took over the ​building​ and it became known as the 'Grosvenor Park' nursing and residential home. Following this, the ​building​ remained empty for many years until conversion into apartments and renamed 'Hazel Court'. Hazelhurst Cottages nearby have also been renamed to Hazel Court Cottages.[1]
