St. Nicholas Hospital


This psychiatric hospital, located in Coxlodge, originally opened in 1869 and named Newcastle upon Tyne Borough Lunatic Asylum. During the First World War patients were evacuated and the hospital became Northumberland No1 War Hospital for wounded soldiers. In 1921 it returned to being used as an asylum and in 1948 the National Health Service took over the hospital and changed the name to St Nicholas Hospital.
