Sandy's Row Synagogue, Sandys Row, Bethnal Green E1 - Tower Hamlets

Former Huguenot chapel which was altered in the mid-C19 into a synagogue. The building has slate roofs and stock brick walling with red brick dressings. Major re-roofing and high level brick repairs were completed in 2011 with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England. At the same time emergency works were carried out to temporarily restrain the bowing narrow brick piers to the front elevation windows until funding for permanent repairs can be resolved. The flat roofs over the western end of the synagogue were not replaced in 2011 and are now in need of attention.
