SCHOOL FOR THE INDIGENT BLIND
It was founded in 1799.
The site originally allocated for the school was required by the City of London for the building of Bethlem Hospital so two acres of land were allotted opposite the Obelisk.
The School was incorporated in 1826 and in 1834 underwent remodelling and a Gothic style edifice was added which was designed by the architect John Newman F.S.A.
In 1901 the site was purchased by the Baker Street and Waterloo Railway and the School was moved to Leatherhead.
