Giffard House
Giffard House
Giffard House was built between 1727 and 1733 as a residence for two Catholic priests to serve the town and surrounding areas. It replaced an earlier meeting house on the same site. A chapel within the house was used for the saying of Mass which remained illegal until 1778. From 1804 until his death in 1826 it was the home of the influential Bishop John Milner, Vicar Apostolic of the Midland District who was buried behind the chapel. He left 1000 to build the chapel to be called St Peter & St Paul's.

The building is Grade 2* listed.
