Shek Lo photo

Shek Lo is situated east of Tsung Kyam Church in Lung Yeuk Tau in Fanling. It was built in 1924 by Mr Tsui Yan Sau, the founder of Wah Yan College on Hong Kong Island and in Kowloon.

The 2-storey Shek Lo comprising a main building and an annex block is an integration of Chinese and Western architectural styles. Despite its colonial characteristics, the building has a traditional Chinese pitched roof supported on wooden purlins and battens and is covered by Chinese clay tiles. The courtyard and room layout resembles that of traditional Chinese residences. Located in the middle of the roof parapet is a semi-circular pediment engraved with the characters "Shek Lo".

The main building and annex of Shek Lo were rated Grade 1 historic buildings in 2011.

Shek Lo is a private property and is not open to the public.
