30.11.2017 – Stoke Newington History Talks #5: New River, Save the Reservoirs Campaign and photos from the Hackney Archives

SNHT no.5

The 5th Stoke Newington History Talks event was held at St Matthias Hall to accommodate the growing popularity since I organised the first event on the 28th of November 2016. The hall was packed and it was fascinating hearing about the history of the New River from Nick Higham and the story of the campaign to save the New River Reservoirs from Monica Blake.

A 20min video of my talk where I presented photos of Stoke Newington Church from the Hackney Archives collection.
