Religion and Place in Hackney and Tower Hamletsreligion and place in hackney and tower hamlets

A Building Exploratory initiative, which aims to increase knowledge, understanding and awareness of places of worship in East London. To date we have visited and researched more that 200 buildings in Hackney and Tower Hamlets as part of two innovative community projects. Religion and Place in Tower Hamlets explored all buildings used as places of workshop in Tower Hamlets with five artists and students from five schools in the borough. Places of Worship 2009: Hackney and Tower Hamlets investigated the condition and significance of listed places of worship with a volunteer survey group.

Visit the Religion and Place website to explore maps of religious buildings in Hackney and Tower Hamlet, find out about their history and what they are used for today.

Brickfields

www.brickfields.org.uk

The landscape of what is now the London Borough of Hackney has changed dramatically from Roman times. From the woodland through which the Romans carved the first road, now Kingsland Road, the land remained predominately agricultural until the Victorian period. The green fields gave way to the brickfields of housing developments and industry, which still characterise Hackney today.

This site graphically explores the events and people that fuelled this transformation. The main body of the site is for anybody interested in Hackney from Roman times to the present day. In addition there are two sections aimed at family learning; Homes through Time and Victorian Hackney.
