This large Georgian house, standing in its own gardens, was situated on the south corner of Foundry Lane and Henry Road. In 1901 it was acquired by the local Roman Catholic Church and a temporary mission church, the forerunner of St Boniface’s Church, was erected in the grounds. Soon after St Boniface’s Church was built on Shirley High Street in 1927, Wilton Lodge was sold and demolished. The temporary church was converted into a hall for dances and social events. It was later destroyed by fire.
