Brick Lane Mosque: changes in the landscape

From a recent walk I conducted around Spitalfields.The area is constantly changing although its medieval past and eighteenth century development still remain. There is much to see in the built environment not least the restored weavers’ windows, constructed to bring in the light, and the Brick Lane mosque. It started life in 1809 as the  New French Church or Neuve Eglise then leased  to the London Society for Promoting Christianity among the Jews before being passed on to the Methodists and thence  the Machzike Hadath Society.
