St. Joseph’s

This is St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Barley Hill Road, which was also used as a church. The building went up in 1883 and was used until 1967 when St. Benedict’s was built near the station [2].

The building was used as a carpet warehouse for many years, and that is what I remember it as from growing up. The building was demolished around 2000 to make way for new flats to be built, which were named St. Joseph’s Court in remembrance of the school.
