HOSPITAL OF ST ANDREW

DESCRIPTION + /

St Andrew's Hospital, Denhall, is situated on the edge of a former cove (now silted) in the eastern shore of the Dee estuary. It was founded c 1231-4 for the help of the poor, shipwrecked, and travellers to and from Ireland, and was dissolved in 1496 when it was united with St John's Hospital, Lichfield. The site is marked by earthwork remains of ruined buildings and walls, probably relating to the hospital, as well as by other earthworks (see SJ 37 SW 20-22) some of which may relate to use of the cove as an outport for Chester in the medieval and early post-medieval periods. After dissolution, the hospital buildings were for a time used as the parsonage for Burton Church until demolition in 1738.
