Cherry Knowle Hospital, Ryhope


Demolished in 2011. Cherry Knowle Hospital in Ryhope, designed by George T. Hine, opened in 1895 (then called 'Sunderland Borough Lunatic Asylum'). In 1891 the Borough of Sunderland had selected Ryhope for the location of a new psychiatric facility, taking advantage of its good rail service and a scenic views of the North Sea. The main building ('The Laurels') followed the 'compact arrow echelon' design, with 6 wards were stepped out from the central services, similar to other asylums built at that time, notably the USA 'Kirkbride plan'.[1] As well the 6 wards, there was a chapel and recreation hall. There were other buildings in the hospital, including the 'Oaks' isolation ward, and an infirmary block, added in 1902. The hospital became known as Cherry Knowle from the late 1940s. The hospital closed in 1998 and was demolished in 2011.[2] A new modern hospital, Hopewood Park in Ryhope, opened in September 2014 - to replace both Cherry Knowle and the mental health wards in South Tyneside General Hospital.[3]
