Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church
During the First World War a hut was used on the corner of Kildare Close. This was replaced in 1919 by two huts joined together at the entrance to Quebec Barracks and was dedicated to The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Although on Army land it was used by both the military and civilians. In 1986 a new church was built on the High Street opposite the top of Chalet Hill.
