De la Pole Hospital
From Asylum Projects
|De la Pole Hospital|
|Building Style||Pavilion Plan|
|Architect(s)||Smith and Brodrick of Hull|
The new Kingston upon Hull Borough Asylum was built to replace the original asylum which was too small and in a poor state of repair. The new building was purpose built and occupied much larger grounds. In addition to the main building was a detached chapel and villas, an admission hospital and nurses home were added later. In later years a number of services were relocated from the nearby Broadgate hospital when that closed. The hospital closed in 1996 and the main complex was demolished although most other buildings survive in various uses.
