TQ1792 : Stanmore: Bernays Hall

near to Stanmore, Harrow, Great Britain

Stanmore: Bernays Hall
Stanmore: Bernays Hall
Bernays Hall, or to give it its original full name of the Ernest Bernays Memorial Institute, is on the south side of The Broadway, and was erected in memory of Ernest Leopold Bernays, the eldest son of the Reverend Leopold Bernays who was rector of Stanmore from 1860 to 1883. Ernest, who was an undergraduate at New College, Oxford, died in a tragic drowning accident at Glengarriff in Ireland on 31 August 1870, and this date is inscribed in tablets set into the brickwork of the front fašade. Surprisingly, given the dearth of old buildings in the central area of Stanmore, the hall is not a nationally listed building.

The hall, which can be booked for functions, and which was extensively refurbished in 2009, has a very good and informative website here LinkExternal link
