Carlisle Archivists Save Piece of (London's Islamic) Religious History A piece of religious history has been restored by archivists in Carlisle.


The team at Cumbria County Council’s city-based archive services have returned architectural drawings for one of the first purpose-built mosques in Britain to their former glory.

They were drawn up by celebrated Cumbrian architect Thomas Mawson, who built the place of worship for the Ahmadiyya Community in south-west London at Southfields in 1925.

Officially named the Fazl mosque, it also came to be known as the London mosque.
