Signs throughout the trail provide interesting information, and just about every board has mentions the College’s history in World War II. We were particularly interested to learn that during a time when racial segregation was still rife in the American Armed Services, the Morley hospital was one of the few US military hospitals in Britain that was not segregated and where patients received treatment based on the severity of their wounds not the color of their skin.
