Articles for the ELHS Newsletter are always welcomed. If you are stuck indoors, maybe you can write something for us.

All meetings are held at Latimer Congregational Church Hall, Ernest Street, E1 4LS (see the red star at the centre of the map), unless otherwise stated. Meetings start at 7:30pm. Ernest Street is between Harford Street and White Horse Lane, off Mile End Road (opposite Queen Mary and Westfield College). The nearest underground stations are Mile End and Stepney Green. Buses: 25, 205, 339 to Queen Mary College and D6, D7, 277, 323, 339, 425 to Mile End Station.


Because of the current Covid-19 emergency we postponed the last two lectures of our 2019/20 season and provisionally allocated them to September and October of the 2020/21 season.

September  Hackney, Portrait of a Community, Laurie Elks.
November The Precinct of St Katherine's by the Tower in the 18th century, Derek Morris.

However, it now seems unlikely that restrictions on indoor meetings will be lifted before the end of the year. We expect to have another newsletter before then to advise you of the up to date position.
