Castle Relief Hospital
off Castle Street, Bletchingley, Surrey RH1 4LB
Medical dates:

Medical character:
1916 - 1918

Convalescent (military)
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.

We have presumed this building was used as an auxiliary military hospital during WW1.  No further details have (as yet) come to light.

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.
