Aged unknown

The mitre (/ˈmaɪtər/; Greek: μίτρα, "headband" or "turban"), also spelled miter (see spelling differences), is a type of headgear now known as the traditional, ceremonial head-dress of bishops and certain abbots in traditional Christianity. Mitres are worn in the Orthodox Church, Roman Catholic Church, as well as in the Anglican Communion, some Lutheran churches, and also bishops and certain other clergy in the Eastern Catholic Churches and the Oriental Orthodox Churches. The Metropolitan of the Malankara Mar Thoma Syrian Church also wears a mitre during important ceremonies such as the Episcopal Consecration.

Rebuilt in over two years in 1830/31 to a much bigger and more elaborate design, during this time many of London's slum areas were being improved and West Greenwich was noted as a favourite and fashionable area with London's wealthy. During World War Two the Mitre was badly damaged with significant damage caused to the front and first floor of the building.
