19, Princelet Street, Spitalfields E1 - Tower Hamlets

Terraced house of 1719 by Samuel Warrall, builder, with added synagogue of 1869 by a Mr Hudson. The building combines a well preserved Spitalfields Huguenot merchant's house with weaving garrets, and a rare surviving small synagogue. The Local Authority is working with the owners to develop a scheme that will secure the full repair of the building. Possible sources of funding are also being explored.
