Dating back to the middle of the 12th century Ilford Hospital Chapel was founded by Adeliza Abbess of Barking in the reign of King Steven. The chapel was largely rebuilt in 1719 but some of the original building survives including parts of the north and west walls.

RWA were appointed by the Friends of the chapel in 2002 at which time the building was listed grade II. On our recommendation an application was made for upgrading to II*. The reports were accepted and the chapel's listing has been updated.

Used on a weekly basis the building required essential repairs to arrest deterioration of the fabric and to deal with extensive dampness. These works have now been carried out using a repair grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
