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).
