Woolwich Catholic Club now almost demolished for student block replacement

A passing bus journey yesterday showed that almost all of the former Catholic Club is now down.

After many years of plans, revised plans then a final approval work is set to begin on constructing a new block featuring around 300 student rooms near the Elizabeth line station.

As it was

Plans were approved back in 2022. It’s being developed by Singapore-based private equity firm Q Investment Partners and Hurlington Capital.

The club had been closed for a long time. I have some vague memories of going there once or twice but it was years back.

It reminded me of the working men’s club on Abbey Wood estate at Finchale Road that also came down years back. That’s been gone so long the earliest Google Streetview from 2009 doesn’t even show it.


Beresford Street is down to one lane eastbound while work is underway.

At this rate it’ll be down entirely in a week or two.

Coming down

Clearly the student block wont be ready for this September’s start of the academic year so September 2026 looks a likely bet.

Barring any more delays of course.

  • Student accommodation seems to be the new ‘sure thing’ as they are mushrooming all over the place. Who knew that there were so many students able to afford the high rents.
