New Cross (Equitable) Building Society

Inscription

Established 1866.

New Cross (Equitable) Building Society was established in 1866 but did not move into this building (and presumably erect the shield) until about 1901.

Site: Iyengar Yoga Institute and New Cross Building Society (2 memorials)

SE14, New Cross Road, 470

The decorative shield is in the pediment. The Iyengar plaque is below the window on the left.

Although the New Cross (Equitable) Building Society was established in 1866 it did not move into this building (and presumably erect the shield) until about 1901. Prior to that the building seems to have been a private home, as it was for William George Fulcher when he died on 11th March 1887.

The building society used this building until 1984. By 1987 the Deptford Seventh Day Adventist Church had taken it over but they moved out in 1991. And in 1994 the yoga institute moved in.
