Storthes Hall Hospital, Thurstonland
UNDER CONSTRUCTION!There's not much to see here at the moment but we hope to add more details about this topic at a later date :-)
Storthes Hall Hospital was a psychiatric hospital located in the Thurstonland district which operated between 1904 and 1991.
It was originally opened as Storthes Hall Asylum (1904-1928), before being renamed Storthes Hall Mental Hospital (1929-1938), West Riding Mental Hospital (1939-1948), and finally Storthes Hall Hospital (1949-1991).
To avoid unnecessary stigma, deaths at the hospital were sometimes recorded as having taken place at "North Spring House, Kirkburton" in probate records.
