Castle Hill Hospital
is an NHS hospital
to the west of Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshire
, and is run by Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
The Hospital is built on a plateau that was once the grounds of a house called Cottingham Castle. Built in the 1820s by Thomas Thompson, the house was destroyed by fire in the 1860s after the owner fled from the King, all that remains is a single turret
which was a folly
in the garden of the original house, and can be seen from Eppleworth Road. The Castle Park estate, lying on the land below the hospital grounds was built over a 20 year period from the late 1960s, the main builders including West and Larvin. There has been major construction work on a new £65 million Cancer Centre and a £30 million cardiology centre, both are now open.
