History of 14 St Paul's Road

1849 the plot behind the church was sold for the building of a parsonage. [For more information about the development of the area see St Paul’s Church and Cambridge Place].

Built by G G Scott, 1853-4, for his brother, the Rev. John Scott. According to Pevsner, the red brick, modern-Gothic-domestic mode anticipated St John’s Master’s Lodge.
