Nunthorpe Hall: The Story of an Auxiliary Hospital in World War One

Nunthorpe HallOne of the noteworthy buildings in our area was Nunthorpe Hall. This was in the area now built over as Coggan Close, between Albemarle Road and Philadelphia Terrace. The Hall was demolished in 1977.

During World War One the Hall was lent to the Red Cross by Sir Edward Lycett-Green, for use as a hospital.  Pauline Alden and Anne Houson have been researching some of the women who worked there as nursing and medical staff at that time. Follow this link.
