Broadgate air.jpg
Broadgate Hospital was built when it became necessary to separate from the agreement with North Riding with whom the Clifton Asylum was shared. The asylum was designed by Charles Henry Howell who was also architect at the Brookwood, Moulsford and Cane Hill asylums. Broadgate was one of the earlier UK asylums to close (in 1987), and services were then combined with those at De la Pole Hospital, in Hull. The buildings were demolished and housing built on the site.
