Drapers' Almshouses, Bromley-by-Bow, London, prior to restoration: the chapel front

RIBA115883
NOTES: The Drapers' Almshouses were built in 1707 with monies left to the company by a Mr John Edmunson, sailmaker. Originally the almshouses covered three sides of a quadrangle, with six houses on each side (east and west) with a central block of four containing the chapel. It is this block which survived into the twentieth century albeit in very poor repair. This was acquired by the Greater London Council in 1947 and eventually restored (with a grant from them) by Anthony Richardson & Partners in 1982.
