14 June outing to Christchurch Highbury.

Meet at 11 am on Tuesday 14 June at Christchurch, Highbury outside the Community Room and cafe. 

The Community Room is on the side of the church away from Highbury Grove opposite the clocktower, commemorating Queen Victoria's 60th Jubilee.

Pic just in case. The community room is on the right almost out of sight.

The church itself is early Victorian with some later additions. The nearby area is known as Highbury Barn, after an actual barn which became a popular entertainment centre in the nineteenth century. Many of the local shops are independent specialist shops, such as a good butcher, greengrocer and Italian Deli. Highbury Barn Tavern is nearby with an outside terrace.

The address of the church is 155 Highbury Grove N5 1SA. It is about midway between Finsbury Park and Highbury and Islington underground stations and is served by several buses including the 4 and the 19. Highbury Fields is nearby.

The community rooms offer coffee and cakes. There are also loos. They are happy to welcome us whether or not we buy any coffee, as we are a community group (Islington Art Society). They are happy to provide us with extra chairs, but please don't take them out of the grounds. There should be no problem about eating our own sandwiches should we choose to. We hope to be able to get into the Church, but this will be confirmed on the day.
