Bowling Pin, Old Street Square

In the minutes of the LCS General Committee meeting, held on 2 July 1795 it was reported that Div. 16 had "moved to Bowling pin Old Street Square Wednesday" (Add MSS 27813, fos. 65v-7;
Thale 258).

Old Street Square was once on the present site of the Redbrick Estate to the west of the Old Street/Bath Street junction. It had a history of providing meeting places for radical and dissenting groups, such as the Muggletonians.
