Ian Tetley Memorial School, Hampsthwaite, Harrogate, West Riding of Yorkshire

In 1943, Barnardo's evacuated its Bruce Porter Hospital Home to a large old house known as Hollins on Lund Lane between Hampsthwaite and Killinghall, near Harrogate.

In September 1947, with the return of the Bruce Porter Home to its original base in Folkestone, Hollins continued in a similar role as a convalescent home under the name of the Ian Tetley Memorial Home. By 1975, the home had its own a heated swimming and hydrotherapy pools.
