Chapel, St Gabriel's Manor, Cormont Road
St Gabriel's College was built in 1900 as a training college for women teachers and soon became a seminary for Anglican priests. A chapel was added and consecrated in 1903. From the beginning of the First World War in August 1914, the male students having enlisted, the College became home to the First London General Hospital. It dealt with casualties of the war, closing in 1919. After the war, and certainly during the 1930s it resumed life as a teacher training college for women. It was converted into flats in the mid-1990s. Information from: LinkExternal link LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link
