History Of The Building - History of The Windsor Lodge Hotel:
The oldest part of the hotel was originally the Daventry Grammar School when New Street was known as Cow Lane. This School was founded just one week after Daventry received its charter from Queen Elizabeth 1, and was a beneficiary of the will of one William Parker dated 6th April 1576.The building was certainly completed by the year 1600.
There are records of Headmasters through the 18th century and the school feature in the census summaries of the 19th and 20th centuries. By 1910, although the school was doing well the old building in New Street was being used a Parish room.
In 1916 the Roman Catholic Church of St Marks had become too small for its ever expanding congregation and so the old grammar School in New Street was leased for 14 year period. The whole building was redecorated, the porch remodelled with heating and gas lighting being installed. The rent was £20 per annum. The new Church was dedicated to Our Lady of Charities and ST Augustine.
In 1924 the Church was purchased for £375 plus expenses. In 1926 electricity was installed in the church and house. The Church remained in used until about 20 years ago when a new Church dedicated to St Augustine was built in London Road, Daventry.
