Abney House Abney House

Plaque: Abney House


London Borough of Hackney
The gateway to Abney House which stood here 1700 - 1843.
Issac Watts, hymn-writer and poet, stayed here 1734 - 1748.

Oops! The plaque has 'Issac' rather than the more common 'Isaac' and we can't find any support for this odd spelling. Hope no one lost their job over it.

Site: Abney House (1 memorial)
