The Star and Garter

The Royal Star and Garter Home of Richmond which used to house ex-service personnel. Providing nursing and therapeutic care since WWI. It closed on 9 May 2013 and moved the care home to another location. Looks to be turned into either flats or hotel. Who knows. Here are some shots of this beautiful building.
