As many of you may know, the Congregation of London traces its origin back to the famous Petition presented to Cromwell in by Rabbi Menasseh Ben Israel, from Holland, and six of the ‘secret Jews’ Marranos living in London. For the first time since the expulsion in Jews were permitted to live and worship openly in England.
They quickly set up a synagogue in a rented house in Creechurch Lane in the City of London and leased land in Mile End, Stepney, for a burial ground. The Congregation grew steadily and it was eventually decided to build a large new synagogue. In the beautiful Bevis Marks Synagogue in the City was opened. It remains in regular use.

Fashions in building design and changes to both building materials and methods of construction are useful when dating many historic houses.
Careful examination often reveals alteration, extensions and dramatic modifications to older buildings. A knowledge and understanding of the different periods of construction allow a surveyor to advise on historic and period buildings. Dates of period architecture relate to the reigns of Monarchs although there are no exact dates when one style changed to another.
Old buildings are costly to heat, maintain and repair. This is a continuing responsibility even following a major refurbishment.
