1894 – Enfield BB HQ

A new headquarters opens for The Boys’ Brigade at 51 Lancaster Road, after being given to the BB by the Liberal and Radical club.

The headquarters has one large room downstairs and two small rooms upstairs. One of the rooms upstairs is for games and the other for reading; this room contained a library for boys’ books and a fire in the corner, with boys being allowed to take books home.

Bible classes are held there (the 1st downstairs and the 3rd upstairs), club rooms and a printing press featured on weekdays, while on Sunday evenings sometimes 200 boys crowded in for a lantern service. Football, cricket, ambulance drill and woodcarving are also started.
