Photo survey of Stoke Newington coal hole covers 

I completed a photo survey of coal holes covers within the boundaries. I only started notice these case iron objects a few months ago and have been fascinated to see so many different patterns and designs so I decided to document all of them. I checked every Victorian house in every street in the boundaries of the former borough of Stoke Newington (More interesting than it sounds). Found 76 different ones and I estimate about 600 overall. You can download an A2 poster here.

The 3rd Stoke Newington History Talks event at the White Hart pub was a great success, with a packed function room and brilliant talks from Ken Worpole and Alan Denney. Ken talked about the birth of the Garden City Movement, which began in Stoke Newington. Alan presented photos from the 1970’s and 1980’s, which are part of his amazing vast collection of photos of the area. I presented my property survey of Stoke Newington Church Street 1847-2017. My presentation slides are available here.

Final poster1

Inspired by a meeting I attended at William Patten School regarding a planned local heritage project, I created Sgt. Pepper-like poster summarising 60 individuals connected with Stoke Newington from the last 6 centuries. Some were born in Stoke Newington, others lived in the area for period or helped shape its architectural landscape.
