Hanbury Hall - tiled plaque

Erection date: 27/9/2015

Inscription

The Huguenots of Spitalfields
1598 1685
AMG

These 20 Delft tiles are decorated with scenes and symbols important in Huguenot history, such as early church buildings in the area and some Huguenot occupations: silversmiths, horticulture, clockmaking and silk dealing.  Spitalfields Life was at the unveiling and has links to pages with excellent photos of this lovely art work.

Site: Hanbury Hall (4 memorials)

E1, Hanbury Street, 22, Hanbury Community Centre

Below the oval blue plaque there is a foundation stone:
This stone was laid by Mr William Forster - superintendant
C. Mc.I North - Archt.
August 1864

The white plaque used to be just to the right of the foundation stone, under the windowsill.  This plaque was removed when the building was renovated in 2015.  It emerged with two new memorials: the tiles and the blue oval.  We thank our colleague Alan for these photos.

The pavement plaque is immediately outside the entrance.

From Spitalfields Life:"The Hanbury Hall in Hanbury St was built in 1719 as a Huguenot Church, standing back from the road behind a courtyard with a pump. The building was extended in 1864 and is now the church hall for Christ Church, Spitalfields."
