I spent many mornings reading documents dating as far back as 1886 and exploring the Oxford House Chapel. I spent afternoons writing blog articles, trying to find the best way to tell Oxford House’s century-long history. I also had the chance to interview various people in Bethnal Green who either worked or grew up in this thriving community centre. Sarah, former Heritage Intern
