The MML is a striking Grade II listed eighteenth century building situated on Clerkenwell Green. Highlights include our Main Hall, a large meeting room adorned with banners of the British Battalion of volunteers in the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39. The ‘Lenin Room’ is an atmospheric office where Lenin worked in exile in London in 1902/3. A 1934 floor to ceiling fresco by Jack Hastings depicting Marx, Engels, William Morris is the focal point of our Library’s reading room. The walls of our staircases and corridors display artefacts from major industrial disputes, such as the minerworkers’ and Wapping strikes of the 1980s. The historic vaults, which date back to the fifteenth century, can be visited, stacked high with our unique collections of books and periodicals. A memorial courtyard dedicated to media workers killed in the 20th century war against fascism, from Spain in 1936 to victory in Europe in 1945 is tucked away at the back of the building.
