On the western edge of the town, the chapel is a simple post war building.
Replacing the older church just round the corner, this is a converted light industrial building on an industrial estate.
An independent evangelical church on The Grange estate in the north of Letchworth. The church was founded in 1964 but the building is later in date.
Serving the Jackman’s Estate on the south side of the town. It was established in 1997.
Built in 1934, serving north east Letchworth.
Now converted into an Elim run Montessori School which opened in January 2015. An Elim congregation, the first in Hertfordshire, began in 1923. This building was designed by Cecil Hignett and constructed by the congregation in 1926-27 around a wooden building. It was replaced around 2006 by the nearby and much larger Icknield Centre. The top two views are before opening as a school. The lower views show it in use as a school. The sanctuary has been divided into three classrooms with a false ceiling that allows new facilities to be added on an upper floor that is currently being completed (October 2017). The entrance area to the church retains contemporary decoration and built-in niches for books. I am grateful to the church for the invitation to visit and photograph this building.
The hall dates from 1936 and lies east of the town centre.
Some way out from the town centre, it dates from 1914 and was designed by George Baines.
At the south end of the town centre. It was built in 1923 to designs by Barry Parker, one of the Garden City’s designers and replaced an earlier building of 1905
