Visited with Minty447 & A.N. Other.
Nazareth House was a former orpanage & girls school run by nuns from the Roman Catholic church. An amazing location, this place is big, full of atmosphere & very secure. Minty447 will be posting some of his pics soon. In 1892 the Poor Sisters of Nazareth established a convent at Isleworth House, which they renamed Nazareth House. They conduct a girls' orphanage and a home for the aged, for which a number of new buildings have been erected in the grounds. The chapel was built in 1902

The place even has a full size chapel within the building!

Re: Nazareth House Isleworth REPORT 1/3/07

getting some photos up at last, excuse the out of focus ones as was a case of point and shoot in the dark, an interesting place, formerly isleworth house, a stately home set in a few acres backing onto the river thames. the chapel seems to have been added at a later date and there was a small clock tower on one of the many later buildings. still trying to find out when the original building was built, a shame we only accessed one building but was still a good little explore:
