Building    From 1884 

Sacred Heart School, Hammersmith

Categories: Architecture, Education

The origins of the school date back to a nunnery in 1609. In 1869, Cardinal Manning decided to convert it into a seminary, and had John Francis Bentley (the architect of Westminster Cathedral) draw up plans for the current Tudor-styled buildings.
