built around 1865-9 for
William Spriggs, a Quaker
and Worcester Clothier, in the
Italian style popularised by
Prince Albert. In the 1890’s
the house was enlarged
in matching style by the
architect John Henry Williams
of Foregate Street, Worcester,
for the Hon. Alfred Percy
Allsopp. Allsopp was a local
brewer who owned the
Star Hotel. He was Mayor of
Worcester in 1892, 1894 and
1905. The original house is
now incorporated into the
South West corner of the
Built Circa
Rail – Railway stations are
available at Worcester Shrub
Hill station and Worcester

The building was used as a
convalescent home during
the First World War. It then
became the home of the
Sisters of St. Marie Madeleine
Postel, a Roman Catholic
Teaching Order, in 1933. St.
Mary’s was a popular and
well-regarded independent
nursery and school until
its closure in 2014. A large
Victorian property opposite
was purchased for the
development of the Prep
School. The Early Years
Department was housed in
buildings which comprised of
former stables with hay loft
over, a carriage house with
groom’s quarters over and
washing bay to front, and the
sick bay and forge, all c. 1893.
