Churchfield House and the Old Vicarage




This fine print of Churchfields House was drawn and published by W. Perry of Broad Street , Margate and is undated. Even though it is undated it certainly has a lovely early 1800's feel about it. The building still stands today and was recently discovered to be a cannabis factory.
The other engraving is of the old St John's the Baptist Vicarage that once stood in the church grounds before it was demolished. Please feel free to download both prints and add to your collection of old Margate.

I have a section of a picture of Churchfield's House dated from the 1960's, yet another sad desctrution by the council!

Doh, cut me off too quickly. My point was, this isn't Gordon House, which was also located in the area of Churchfield's, but Churchfield Academy itself.

Great blog by the way!!

In the 1911 Census my grandfather William Henry Woodward was a Police Constable and his address was Churchfield House, which was a lodging house run by Alfred and Emily Strand. I suppose it must be the same building. The Census records it had 30 rooms.
