brook street chapel 1840

Part of the 250th anniversary programme for Luke Howard (1772-1864), come along for a special visit and historical introduction to Brook Street Chapel in Tottenham. The chapel opened in 1839 for local Plymouth Brethren. Amongst the founding members were the chemist John Eliot Howard FRS (1807-1883) and his brother Robert Howard, the sons of Luke Howard. You can find out more about the fascinating history and heritage of the chapel and its invaluable community work - what it continues to do today, and has done over the past two centuries.

The chapel is in Brook Street, a small side street off Tottenham High Road, opposite Bruce Grove Station.

Visit lasts approximately one hour.

With our thanks to Brook Street Chapel for arranging our special visit for Bruce Castle Museum & Archive and Tottenham Clouds.

Please book your free ticket for this event via Eventbrite.
