~ History ~

Woodford Halse Social Club was originally built in 1898 as a Hunting Lodge called the Gorse Hotel. The hotel was used as a base for travelers on hunting trips organized in the local area.
Many travelers arrived via the railway system that was located nearby. It had many guests over the years and it is even rumored that prince Edward once stayed at the hotel during a hunting trip.

The Hotel was closed during WWI and then again during WWII after which it was sold to a local farmer and not rescued until 1955 when the local railway company purchased it as a private members club for employees. It remained this way until 1970 when it was purchased from the railway company by it’s members and opened to the public where it has since gone from strength to strength.

The main bar and lounge areas were modernized and refurbished in 2002 and it now has over 700 members who are spread as far away as Brighton!
