Which building is this ?

Jim Connelly writes (Sept 2008) :

" This is the accommodation suite which was built on to the side of Broome Hall near to
the kitchen and the courtyard. It was a new building in the late 50s / 60s and accommodated
the novices, each having their own room with a plumbed-in hand sink.
"

Broome Hall clock tower—or did you have another name for this feature?

Is that a Ford Popular ?
"Yes," says Tom: " it was the first car I had ever driven and on two occasions was almost the last. "

(Most of the cars that we young'uns bought in those days were built in the thirties/forties ;
they cost about £30, had a maximum speed of 35 mph
and were painted black).

Do you recognise this pond—which was just outside the accommodation block ?

A familiar view but the priest (novice?) is not identified.

Tom says : " It was the Broome Hall Ghost or an Irish novice whose name I can't remember. "

This a view of the Broome Hall lake in which we swam. (Photo taken in 1967)

(Paul West writes : "My personal experience of this was of days out to 'Dorking' organised
by the Heston parish when it
was run by the White Fathers). "
