TQ4565 : St Anne's Convent

taken 6 years ago, near to Orpington, Bromley, Great Britain

St Anne's Convent
St Anne's Convent
A convent of the Sisters of Mercy, and the remaining link to the St Anne's Orphanage which (along with the St Joseph's Orphanage) until the late 1970s occupied the whole of this area. The building was the former presbytery for Holy Innocents' Church prior to a new one being built in 1981, at the same time as the new church.

Bishop Butt Close, in which it stands, commemorates Bishop Butt of the RC diocese of Southwark, who in 1887 founded the Southwark Diocesan Education Council & Rescue Society for poor and neglected children from South London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex, which 4 years later set up the St Joseph's Orphanage (later supplemented by the St Anne's Orphanage).
