Administrative/Biographical history:

The Old Gravel Pit meeting house, Chatham Place, was built in 1715 by Presbyterians from the Mare Street meeting following a disputed ministerial appointment. In 1811 the lease was taken over by a Congregational church which had been formed in 1804 and had been meeting in a hall at Homerton College. In 1869 the congregation ordered a new building on Lower Clapton Road. A large stone church was designed by Henry Fuller in a Romanesque style; it was ready in 1872. The church was renamed 'Clapton Park Congregational Church'. It is now Clapton Park United Reformed Church.
