Modelled on an Oxford or Cambridge College, the buildings of Toynbee Hall included the Lecture Hall and Ashbee Hall with accommodation on the upper floors, two further ‘college’ buildings; Balliol and Wadham which were named after their Oxford counterparts, a theatre, library and warden’s lodge. The lodge, Balliol and Wadham were all destroyed during the London Blitz in the Second World War, and were replaced by Attlee House in 1963 and Sunley House in 1974.
