I’m assuming this is the Great Hall they mean :?:
54 Rotherhithe Evangelical Free Church. This is said to be on the site of the Rotherhithe Hippodrome. The Free Church in Rotherhithe dates from at least the 1880s founded by a Mr. Golding and stood at 46 Lower Road. It was also known as ‘Rotherhithe Great Hall '; although it appears to have been a terrace of three houses. It was damaged in Second World War bombing and demolished.
