Boone's Chapel: front
Boone's Chapel: front
Boone's Chapel was a private chapel built c.1682, probably to the designs of Robert Hooke (a pupil of Wren), for Christopher and Mary Boone, who were eventually buried there. It was restored by the Blackheath Historic Buildings Trust in 2004-2008 and is now open on Open House Weekend and a few other occasions each year.

This is the frontage of the chapel seen from across Lee High Road.
Merchant Taylors Almshouses and Boone's Chapel, Lee
The almshouses are around three sides of a courtyard to the north of Lee High Road, Lewisham. The current buildings were built in 1826. In front of them stood the earlier almshouses and chapel from 1683 originally commissioned by Christopher Boone, a London merchant and a member of the Merchant Taylorsí Company, demolished in 1875. The adjacent Boone's Chapel continued to function as a reading room, but fell into disuse after 1945 and restored in the early 2000s.

The almshouses and chapel are now listed grade 2 and grade 1 respectively (List entry Numbers 1080030 and 1079981).
