Parish and People
Comment: Now part of Our Lady and St.Chad Roman Catholic School.
It is worth remembering that Bushbury contained many Catholic families, even
when it was dangerous to do so!
Possibly this house gets its star, when most of the others in the City do
not, is because it is a bit fancier, being tricked out with stonework, and
may be by Smith of Warwick.
