Beaufort Hospital was a military hospital in Stapleton district of Bristol during World War I. Before the war it was an asylum and after the war it became a psychiatric hospital. Built next to the co-located Stapleton Hospital mental health facility, the Bristol Lunatic Asylum was the citys response to the 1845 Mental Asylum Health Act, which laid upon local authorities the statutory duty to provide treatment facilities for in-patients.
