St Patrick's Church, Woolston

The Woolston mission dates from 1879 and Mass was said in a tin chapel in Obelisk Road from about 1880 until the building of a permanent church-cum-school on the present site in 1883 to designs by Leonard Stokes, one of his first commissions. A few years later Stokes altered and enlarged St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Bugle Street, Southampton. Stokes’ building was demolished in 1969. The present church was erected in 1938-9 but was gutted by an incendiary bomb the following year. Restoration took place only in 1948-50. The architect was W.C. Mangan of Preston. It is not clear whether the rebuilding was to the design of 1938-9 or whether changes were made.
