NOTES: This children's home and school was purpose-built for the original Foundling Hospital, founded by Thomas Coram in 1741, which had relocated from its London Bloomsbury site in the 1920s to a healthier location in the countryside at Redhill, Surrey.
NOTES: The Finsbury Health Centre was an attempt to rationalize the borough's health provision by providing on a single site a wide range of facilities, the needs of some of which could alter radically with time. Tecton's masterly solution to the complex circulation patterns such a multi-functional building entailed was hailed by architectural and medical critics alike as a prototype and a radical break with traditional health provision. The building is Grade I listed and was partly restored in the 1990s.
NOTES: Occupying the site of the 12th century Walden Abbey, granted to Sir Thomas Audley in 1538, this is the largest of the Jacobean 'prodigy' houses. It was built by Thomas, Earl of Suffolk and King James I's Lord Chamberlain from c.1605 to c.1614.
