Society leads efforts to restore Lavender Hill Cemetery Chapel

For some time the Enfield Society has been working with the Council’s heritage team to secure the restoration of the nonconformist chapel at Lavender Hill Cemetery.

The chapel is a Grade II listed building owned by the London Borough of Enfield, but having been unoccupied for several years, the chapel is in poor condition and has been included on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register.

Enfield Council has been awarded grant funding from the National Heritage Lottery Fund, The Pilgrim Trust and The Enfield Society to restore the chapel for community use.

A programme of activities and consultations with members of the local community are also planned, including nature walks, a maintenance training day, and the production of online interpretation about the history of the site.

More details can be found on Enfield Council’s website.
