History of the building

Worth Corner has a huge amount of history behind the building, from being a home, a school and now a business centre. In the late 18th to early 19th century, it was built as a private residence then known as Oakfield or Oakfield Lodge. The building now known as Oakfield Lodge is the four-bedroom house between the Hillside Inn and Worth Corner. The house was home to a number of residents, 1901-1916 a total number of 19 residents were recorded as staying there, 10 of these were servants.

In 1938, it became ‘The convent of Notre Dame private girls school’ a Roman Catholic middle school. 30 years in 1968, on saw it change to a secondary school for girls and almost immediately becoming a middle mixed school in 1984 for 9-13-year-olds. The school then closed on August 31st, 1996, the Nuns left the convent which was then sold and let as offices. A large part of the school was then demolished and made way for new housing. The building is now owned by Beamland Ltd.

Worth Corner as we know it now is a three-floor business centre with offices available to be occupied. Alongside the offices that are available to rent there are virtual offices available as well as a meeting room which is available to hire for £12.50 per hour.

Happy Client Says

“Netkandi Ltd first arrived at Worth Corner in 2013 taking a small 2 person office on the first floor, very quickly we out-grew F7 and moved up a floor t S6, although a quieter and better sized office with good facilities along the corridor, however we once again found that before another year was up we had a need to expand our team and more space was needed to allow our thriving company to develop. The ideal location suits us well and we felt no need to move so we thought we would try a floor we hadn’t yet inhabited and moved to the spacious light and airy G10 – ground floor, where we have quickly settled in and spread-out. The team at worth Corner have helped to make this a seamless transition with their friendly and flexible attitude.”
