return: five original full-height round-arched windows with tooled sills,

extension, original 6-panel door with two glazed lights. An historically
interesting building as a very early example of a purpose-built Catholic
chapel and school following the passage of the first Catholic Relief Act
in 1778. Egton had long been a centre of Catholicism in the North-East,
and in 1743 a chapel existed beside Bridge House occupied by the recusant
Smith family, and adjacent to the present church and school. In 1780
there were 415 Catholics in the district. In 1867 the chapel was replaced
by a new church and thereafter functioned solely as a school. Outbuilding
to rear of school, now part of C19 Presbtytery, was the original presby-
tery. Included for historic interest. Hugh Aveling, Northern Catholics.
