This full view of the church (probably taken from Old Cote Drive) was unknown to me as a child because it was hidden by trees and shrubs.

To the left, at the back, was a large painting of the Martyrs of Uganda. Where is it now ? What happened to the statuary
etc when the church was demolished ? Answers on a postcard, please, or email Paul West.

The "Lourdes Grotto" which was built by a group of parishioners in 1932. I cannot make out whether the nun on the left is an actual White Sister or a statue.

The Parish Hall, built in 1933 by a group of Brothers from the Society. The Hall soon became the centre for regular social events — particularly during the war years when entertainments were laid on for the troops who were stationed locally.

In 1944 the Hall was also used as a private school. (See photos of some of the pupils by clicking here or later, by returningto the main menu page).
