Name of creator(s): Congregational Church of England and Wales
Fetter Lane Congregational Church was founded in 1660 on Fetter Lane, near High Holborn and Chancery Lane in the City of London. In 1894 falling membership forced a move to Leyton, where the church merged with an existing congregation worshipping in a temporary iron church. A new permanent church was constructed in 1899 on Langthorne Road, in a 17th century style which recalled the original Fetter Lane Chapel. The name Fetter Lane Congregational Church was adopted for the Leyton church. It is now a United Reformed Church.
