Infirmary (later the New End Hospital, qv) following the
Cleansing of Persons Act 1897. A rare surviving example of
this style of chimney in London. The Boilerhouse Chimney forms
a group with New End Hospital former Workhouse Block (qv), the

particularly strong visual group value with New End School
(qv). It is a local landmark.
