Building    From 1613  To 1984

Bush Hill House

Categories: Property

Bush Hill House was built by Myddelton so that he could live close to the works while the New River was built. The largest house in the parish, it was renamed Halliwick House in the 17th century. Re-fronted in brick in 1850 it was leased to Samuel Cunard until 1878. In 1911 the Cripples and Industrial School moved here from Marylebone Road. In 1927 the Home was transferred to the Society and became Halliwick School for disabled children, first just girls and then boys also. The building was modified and extended. 1984 the school moved out and the building was demolished for a Laing Homes development. The picture shows the house c.1900.
