Thanks to support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Newington Green Meeting House has undergone a major renovation. It has been transformed into a fully accessible, free heritage space, ready to share its radical history and encourage visitors to think differently.

The building was a hotbed of revolutionary thinking in the 18th century and holds stories of Richard Price, Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Andrew Pritchard and most notably Mary Wollstonecraft – leading to it being described as the birthplace of feminism.
