When a group of Roman Catholic Sisters of Mercy had outgrown their premises in Anlaby Road, Hull, their Mother Superior, (Sr. Dawson) was able to negotiate the purchase of a house on this site (behind the photographer) from a wine merchant and his family, named Glossop. In 1901 the large Victorian house became a Convent of Mercy and a tiny school for fourteen pupils was opened within it. Later on, in 1905, a teacher training college for Roman Catholic women was opened. Still later on, in 1925, this three-storey wing was added to the left-hand side of the house. In 1974 it was decreed that the teacher training element of its work was to be amalgamated with the other (secular) teacher training courses running elsewhere in the city and as a result, teacher training ceased here. During 1981-1990 the whole complex (i.e. Dawson House and this attached extension) was run as “Dove House”, a hospice. In 1990 it became an administrative centre for the Hull Institute of Higher Education. Now however, Dawson House is rented out to private individuals and since 2001 the Sisters of Mercy have operated the extension as a Retreat and Conference Centre. Beverley Road is behind the photographer, connected by a short driveway.
