4 Green Street

History of 4 Green Street

On the site of the houses numbered 5,4, and 3 stood an old Independent Chapel, dating back to 1688, generally known as the Old Green Street Meeting House, but later referred to Stittle’s Chapel, after the Rev John Stittle, who served his congregation here from 1781 until his death.

It was above Haslop’s offices that the German spy Jan Ter Braak rented an office 1940-41 while living in St Barnabas Road. In the Wikipedia article about him it says:

Despite his false identity papers, Ter Braak was able to rent an office above the renting firm Haslop & Co in Green Street.
