Block Management Overview

Management is about the minutia done well. It takes a team across a range of disciplines to deal with the multiple facets of block and estate management: politics, building pathology, finance, legal knowhow and of course customer service too.

At Ringley we believe in joined up thinking and commit to signpost Clients on all things property - even if outside our day-to-day management remit

Our true business is building relationships with our people. Our people really know that they can make a difference to our residents. We match our people to what each site needs to be achieved, with you in mind. We lead the market in transparency and focusing on risk, cash, repairs and place making, usually in that order.

We are not shy of hard work and believe our ability to get stuck in and find solutions that sets us apart. We are innovative to the core and committed to implementing good ideas in pursuit of 5* service.

Being who we are would be impossible without our passionately committed people, whose qualifications we sponsor and who we support professionally to be the best they can be, as achieving a national training award and our Silver IIP status confirms.

History of Aldgate

Aldgate is situated east of the City of London, and 2.9 miles from the centre of London. There are many theories concerning the origins of the area's name. In 1052, it was first known as "east gate". However, by 1108, it was "Alegate". Other ideas have been cited: for example, "Ale Gate" may refer to a reputed ale-house; or "All Gate" means the gate was free to all. 
It is believed that a gate at Aldgate spanned the road to Colchester in Roman times, when the London Wall was constructed. Over the centuries, the gate went through many changes in construction. In 1377, it was fortified with portcullises and chained, due to concerns about potential attacks by the French. This was not the only gate in London that had to be fortified.  
From 1374 to 1386, Geoffrey Chaucer, wrote some poems, while he lived in an apartment above the gate, where he was a customs official. Earlier in the century, it was an established practice for Aldermen to rent unneeded space over the City gates. There was a disadvantage, however, as although the rooms were built for military occupancy, they remained inferior in quality, and non-private. Thus, Chaucer, the poet at this time, may have suffered in cramped and cold conditions. 
In 1761, the gate was eventually removed, to improve traffic flow. In the 18th century, the expansion of London meant that its gates and large parts of the wall were demolished. The wall was no longer necessary for defence. 
In 1876, during the reign of Queen Victoria, (r. 1837-1901), Aldgate station was opened; and in 1884, the original Aldgate East station opened. These two stations were a significant development. Currently, these stations are on the London Underground, with Aldgate on the Metropolitan and Circle Lines, and Aldgate East on the Metropolitan and District Lines. 
Up to the 20th century, Aldgate had many council estates, and like other parts of east London, there was a poverty problem. However, in recent years, the area has been uplifted and improved, with regeneration projects. Aldgate is now a booming and thriving part of London.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Aldgate

I was in the Aldgate area, and by chance saw St. Botolph's Church. I went inside, and enjoyed seeing the stained glass windows. Then I went to a local café, and got a coffee, which I drank, in the church garden. It was a good place to sit and relax. 
 

Things to do in Aldgate

St. Botolph's Aldgate, Aldgate High Street, London, EC3, was opened and consecrated in 1744. The church was designed by George Dance, the same architect that designed Mansion House, the official home of the Lord Mayor of London. The church is committed to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults from domestic abuse. There are beautiful stained glass windows within the church. A new glazed doorway will be built, to match the architectural style of the building. Adjoining the church, there is a pleasant garden, for visitors to sit and rest in.
