Plaque: St Joseph's Cottages - Hume
Erection date: 17/10/1986

Site: St Joseph's Cottages (2 memorials)
SW3, Cadogan Street
Prior to about 1840 this site was occupied by Wellington Cricket Ground. The almshouses were built as part of a complex of buildings including St Joseph's Primary School and St Mary's Church. London Gardens Online has more about the site and the various buildings, but we think they are wrong in connecting the site with Lords Cricket Ground.
The two plaques are either side of the porte-cochère.
