Roger Mears Architects have started work on Phase II of the restoration of the East Lodge of the Nunhead Cemetery Chapel, Southwark.

The East Lodge forms one of the pair of lodges at the northern entrance of Nunhead Cemetery, it is Grade II listed and has been on the Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register since 1988 and it is now in a state of serious decay. The lodge has had scaffolding and a temporary roof for over 20 years to provide some protection to the structure while decisions on its future were made.

With support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and matching funds from the client, Southwark Council the lodge will be retained and consolidated. The building will accommodate a café’, events space and facilities for the community groups and the public.

We look forward to work on this exciting community project.
