Join hands to save NORTON FOLGATE

Selvedge

Human chain to circle historic Norton Folgate buildings threatened with demolition
 
On Sunday 19 July at 3pm hundreds of people will join hands to form a human chain around historic buildings in London’s Norton Folgate near Spitalfields Market to protest against proposals from development giant British Land who threaten to destroy a huge area of historical and social significance, including 18 Folgate Street.
.
"Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street, Spitalfields is more than just a time capsule. It is both a breathtaking and an intimate portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. As you follow their fortunes through the generations, the sights, smells and sounds of the house take you into their lives. It was Dennis Severs’ intention that as you enter his house it is as if you have passed through the surface of a painting, exploring with your senses and imagination a meticulously crafted 18th Century world."

If you are at all interested in preserving Spitalfield's Huguenot heritage then this is a campaign worth being involved in.
