We have added a new item in our Articles Page – ‘St. Augustine’s College in it’s Golden Years with the Southwell Family’. In the November 2020 digest of the Pugin Society there appeared an article about the Southwell family and their connection to St. Augustine’s Church and St. Augustine’s School, at a time when the school was billed as being in it’s golden period. The article is produced with permission of Catriona Blaker, The Pugin Society. (their website can be found in our Useful Links Page)

Many thanks to Andrew Sharp and Peter West for their generous sharing of archival material photographs.
