At this point in time, the area between Wallsend and Battle Hill was farmland. The waggonway being the only distinguishable feature from Killingworth. The Hospital would occupy the site to the west of the dene between that and the railway track. Beanyfield Pit, of which not much information still survives, would be to its west side.

The hospital, built only a few years earlier, now occupies the site. The access to the grounds takes a peculiar course, with the (not even) country road crossing the railway track twice to access Battle Hill to the north with no direct path to Wallsend.

Post-war, the area saw creeping urbanisation and the hospital was no longer surrounded by greenery. The Coast Road was in the process of being constructed and housing developments were gradually being constructed northwards. The site was given direct access to the Coast Road at this point.

"The Isolation Hospital, referred to as the Infectious Diseases Hospital, is seen here in 1919. It was originally built in the 1890s in open fields adjoining Wallsend Dene. Later renamed Hadrian Hospital, it was closed in 1986 and was converted into a rest home known as Greenacres. This was then closed and demolished to be replaced by the Kings Vale housing development around 2000, seen here behind the ambulance station built in the 1890s. 

The Hadrian Hospital as viewed in 1919. The site lies just south of the Coast Road at the current Kings Vale housing development.
