Holy Trinity Church (Church of Ireland), Frankfield was designed by Sir Thomas Deane in a ‘Georgian Gothick’ style in 1838.  It was altered by William Burges in 1865 with the addition of a three light stained glass window for the modified sanctuary, after he had won the competition for St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral.  The church was funded by Samuel Lane of nearby Frankfield House.  Frankfield House was probably designed by Sir Thomas Deane and was built by 1837. It was a five-bay two storey building, with an elegant porch with four Ionic columns.  It had a succession of occupants and was badly damaged during the political unrest of the 1920s.  It was later partially rebuilt.

Donnybrook House is an early eighteenth century house with two corner towers that were formerly slate hung.  Originally two storey it was lowered to one storey circa 1800.  It was the recipient of an IGS Conservation Grant in 2016 funded by the London Chapter..
