1919 – Pennyfeather Memorial Buildings, Barnet, Hertfordshire

Architect: W. Charles Waymouth

0006

“This institution was erected a short time since. The exterior view now reproduced was exhibited at the Royal Academy last summer. The accommodation, a hall to seat 450 adults. The interior of this room is also illustrated. A kitchen is attached to it with rooms for men and women’s clubs adjoining, also billiard and reading rooms. The buildings occupy a site in the grounds be- longing to the church and vicarage, and the hall serves as a parish room as well as Sunday-school. The church is of flint walling with stone dressings, and the vicarage is built in brick. These buildings, therefore, are carried out in all three of these materials in order to harmonise with the previous work. The late Mr, Duraes, of Barnet, was the builder, and his successor, Mr. W. Harrison, was largely responsible for the execution of the work. The roof timbers, and practically all the internal joinery, are of British Columbian pine. Mr. W. Charles Waymouth, F.R.I.B.A., of 104, High Holborn, is the architect.” Published in The Building News, January 29, 1919.
