Upton House

The house where Joseph Lister was born.

Location: Lancaster Road, West Ham

Description: This block of housing opposite West Ham Park is where Upton House, birthplace of surgeon Joseph Lister in 1827, used to be.

In 1893 a temporary church for St Peter's Church, Upton Cross was set up in its gardens, with the house forming the vicarage - the permanent church was later built in the gardens. The vicarage was demolished in 1967-1968 and in 1972 St Peter's Church was declared redundant, demolished and its site sold off.
