SOURCE: R. Ackermann. The Microcosm of London (London, 1835), vol. II, pl. 61 NOTES; In 1788 the Philantropic Society established an industrial school in St George's Fields to provide for children involved in crime and for those of convicted felons. The society transferred to Southwark in 1792, eventually relocating to a farm school in Redhill in 1849 when the chapel was sold to the Anglican Church and used as St Jude's Church, redeveloped in the 1890s and disused after 1976.
