It is always sad when a familiar building ceases to exist.

I was therefore very sorry to see that a fine old piece of architechture I have known since my school days is undergoing the process of being gutted and made into ten flats.

The Wyndlesham Club, founded in 1905 in Davigdor Road near Seven Dials, still bears the sign I first noticed 50 years ago.

As the building is the size of a small hotel, I assume that accommodation may once have been on offer to club members. I wonder if anyone can shed some light onto what kind of club it was?

It would be interesting to know why it was founded and by whom.

I do hope someone knows the history of this lovely old club and can enlighten me.
