English: Hydestile is a hamlet between the villages of Busbridge and Hambledon, a few miles south of Godalming in south west Surrey. Hydestile is a very densely wooded area and is notable for Hydon's Ball (a steep, wooded hill), and a Cheshire Home. From 1921, Hydestile was the site for two hospitals: King George V Hospital ( formerly a TB Sanatorium ) and from 1941, St. Thomas' Hospital (formed from the WWII evacuation of the Lambeth teaching hospital). The hospitals were demolished and redeveloped in the late 90's following years of dereliction.
