Chapel Allerton Hospital was originally built as Gledhow Grove in the
1830's, it was designed by the architect John Clark. Chapel Allerton
Hospital was opened in May 1927 by HRH Princess Mary.
The hospital, run by the Ministry of Pensions, was built in response to the continuing needs of the thousands of servicemen who suffered grievous wounds during the 1914-1918 war. By the 1970s, serious concern was being expressed at the state of parts of the hospital, total closure was one option discussed.
The Grade II listed mansion has been left derelict since 1994.
