Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

Cathedral of Mount Zion

Really is on Crouch Hill near Oddbins and Two Wheels Good. Most respondents believe there is no cathedral in Crouch End

I've not been able to find anything else about this church. I have seen the congregation coming and going wearing splendid robes, but was too nervous to approach them and ask for details.

 Park Chapel, No. 145 Crouch Hill, currently known as the Mount Zion Cathedral, is a large mid 19th Century local listed two storey stone church building that extends along the back of the pavement and terminates the views along Haringey Park.   The east elevation has Gothic influences with lancet windows, gables and tall slate roofs.   The central section  has a two storey projecting porch with a parapet and a tall tower with a pointed spire.    The south end has a squat tower with a stone eaves cornice and hipped slate roof.   The height, length and bulk of the Chapel building has a somewhat overbearing effect upon this narrow part of Crouch Hill and has a significant impact  on the appearance of this part of the onservation area
