Ours is the oldest small animal practice in the United Kingdom. It was established in 1873 as a purpose-built equine practice and holding station for horses injured in battle during the first World War. Sometime between the two World Wars it became a small animal practice. Until the houses near the practice were built, the land around was where the horses were kept.
