|1916 - 1918
The Castle Relief Hospital is reported as having been an auxiliary hospital to the Bethnal Green Military Hospital. It presumably opened in 1916.
The Hospital had 20 beds for convalescent servicemen, and presumably occupied a wing or an outhouse of Castle Hill House.
It probably closed in 1918, at the end of the war.
Present status (May 2013)
In the 1950s a large part of the house was demolished and the remaining portion renamed Castle Place.
Castle Place has since been converted into a luxury apartment block.
The building can barely be discerned from the footpath to the south (above and below).
The main drive from Castle Street.
The back drive from Castle Square.
