The Wood Norton was built in 1897 by exiled French Royalty and was the host of Royal Wedding in 1907 between the Duc D'Orleans sister Princess Louise and and Prince Charles of Bourbon. The chapel at Wood Norton was too small for the wedding and another chapel was erected on the lawn. This had not been consecrated so at the last minute the civil wedding had to be held in a corrugated hut down Avon Street, Evesham. The main ceremony was then held at Wood Norton. In 1939 the BBC bought the site so it could relocate its operations away from London in the event of hostilities. A dozen studios were quickly erected and by 1940 Wood Norton was one of the largest broadcasting centres in Europe with an average output of 1,300 programmes a week. It was home of the BBC’s Monitoring Service until 1943, when monitoring moved to Reading. The move was made to release space so Wood Norton could become the BBC’s main broadcasting centre should London have to be evacuated. In 1940 a fire destroyed the top story of the Hall. It is unknown what started the fire but it was thought to be sunlight shining through a skylight that ignited insulation packing in the roof
