St Alfege Community Hall

There has been a church here for over a thousand years, dedicated to the memory of Alfege, the Archbishop of Canterbury who was martyred on this site in 1012. St Alfege Church was the first London church designed by Sir Nicholas Hawksmoor, and many key historical figures in Greenwich's royal, maritime and scientific history have close links with the site including Henry Vlll, Thomas Tallis, General James Wolfe and John Flamsteed.
