Emergency Services Orpington   started   to   fully   develop   at   a   time   where   centralisation   of   all   the   emergency   services,   we   take   for   granted   today,   was   being taken   seriously.   Imagine   a   time   when   you   had   to   pay   for   it   all   and   if   you   couldn’t,   you   were   left   to   get   on   with   it   yourself!   St   Mary   Cray developed   first   and   the   first   private   hospitals   were   located   there.   The   Metropolitan   Police   were   formed   and   took   over   law   and   order from the local Parish Councils and set up in St Mary Cray. Orpington   Hospital   started   off   as   a   Military   Hospital   for   Canadian   wounded   soldiers   from   WW1.   The   Ontario   Hospital   would   become one   of   the   most   famous   landmarks   in   the   area   for   many   generations.   Princess   Royal   University   Hospital   (Farnborough)   was   the original Workhouse for the area!
