Boone's Chapel: interior
The chapel is very small inside (as it was only built as a family chapel and burial place). It was restored in 2004-08, including conservation of the 19th century wooden panelling. See TQ3975 : Boone's Chapel: front for the exterior.
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).
