Wokefield Park

Wokefield Park seems to have been built for the Brocas family sometime before 1777 when they acquired the property. Sir John Soane made alterations in the early 19th century onwards. However, the cellars have vaulting which may date from the time of the Treasurer of the Middle Temple, Edmund Plowden, who bought the house in 1569. Later owners included George Palmer MP who co-founded Huntley & Palmers.

In 1936 the house became St. Benedict's Approved School. Extensive additional building work took place to add staff housing, workshops and a chapel in the house....Wikipedia
