The tenth Clapham Society Green Plaque was unveiled on the Old Court House in Clapham on 4 July 2017.

The owners, Allison Clark and Axel Meier generously hosted an excellent party in the garden behind their house, on a perfect sunny summer’s evening.

The Green Plaque scheme was initiated by the Clapham Society in 2011 to commemorate interesting buildings in Clapham which have changed their use since they were built and the Building in Netherford road is the latest recipient of the award.

The land for the Court House was purchased in 1889 and you can read more about its history in this article:

Other Green Plaques

Earlier this year in March the ninth plaque was unveiled by Rt. Hon. Alan Johnson MP. This  was on the former Union of Post Office Workers Headquarters in Crescent Lane, now converted to apartments by Galliard Homes,

The site was once occupied by a large house, Grove Lodge, set in extensive grounds which reached as far as the present Abbeville Road. You can read how the building came to be built and its subsequent use here.

If you are curious about any of the buildings  in the scheme and their histories, details of all the plaques can be found on our  Green Plaques page.
