Administrative/Biographical history:

Park Chapel, at the foot of Crouch Hill, was opened in 1855 and registered by Congregationalists in 1856. Alterations raised its seating to 1,017 in 1877 and 1,430 by 1894. After further extensions it had 816 worshippers in the morning and 671 in the evening on one Sunday in 1903, the largest Congregationalist attendances in Hornsey. The chapel and its halls formed a popular social centre, accommodating Hornsey British school until 1877 and later being described as a 'great church'. From 1973 Baptists from Ferme Park shared Park chapel, by then a United Reformed church and still seating circa 1,400.
