About

IMG_8540I’ve lived in Stoke Newington in North London since 2002 and became interested in its history in 2013. Since then I’ve been researching the area’s rich colourful past in my spare time, gathering and sharing material from archives, online resources, books and private collections.

I post on Twitter and Facebook regularly.

Stoke Newington or ‘new town in the wood’, has been settled for hundreds of years and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Originally a small rural village, it was transformed into a London suburb in the 1860’s-80’s.
