As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Clapton.
History of Clapton
Clapton sprang up in the manor and Ancient Parish of Hackney. From 1339 (when it was first mentioned) until the 18th century, the hamlet of Clapton was commonly transcribed as Clopton, meaning "farm on the hill." The Old English clop, which means "lump" or "hill," apparently refers to the high land that rises from the River Lea. Clapton developed as a linear hamlet along the road that later became known as Lower and Upper Clapton Road. As the region became more urbanised, the area known as Clapton grew to comprise the majority of Hackney's north-eastern section.
Clapton was a wayside hamlet that stretched for miles. Manorial courts designated the areas north and south of Lea Bridge Road as Upper and Lower Clapton in the early nineteenth century, and those designations quickly became commonplace, with Hackney Lane becoming known as Lower and Upper Clapton roads. The route from Clapton Common to Stamford Hill was dubbed Clapton Common in the late nineteenth century.
Upper and Lower Clapton are still defined by the intersection with Lea Bridge Road; Kenninghall Road is an extension of Lea Bridge Road and so offers a convenient point of reference between the two areas of Clapton.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Clapton
Check out Chatsworth Road Market: Lower Clapton's Chatsworth Road was formerly home to a thriving market, but by the 1990s, all of the booths were vanished. Chatsworth Road Market was revitalised in 2011 because to the efforts and community spirit of local people. On Sundays, more than 50 independent entrepreneurs sell everything from food and drink to homemade crafts on Chatsworth Road.
Things to do in Clapton
There are a number of things to do in Clapton.
Have a tipple at the Clapton Hart: The Clapton Hart is the ultimate hipster watering establishment, complete with towering ceilings, a beer garden, and a woody vintage ambiance. While it was recently repaired and restored as a public house, it has a long history and has previously operated as a hotel, a coaching inn, and a nightclub. There are lots of real ales and craft brews on sale, as well as a nice Sunday roast.
Chill out at Springfield Park: When summer arrives and showers London with all of its bright brilliance and grandeur, it's crucial to appreciate the excellent weather before it's gone. Springfield Park in Upper Clapton runs along the River Lea and has magnificent views of Walthamstow Marshes.
Take a stroll along Chatsworth Road: Chatsworth Road is a bustling thoroughfare. While the Sunday market attracts thousands of hipsters, there is still plenty going on during the rest of the week. It's easy to spend hours roaming the street and enjoying everything it has to offer, from cafés and restaurants to old-school throwbacks like butchers and bakers.
Clapton is a vibrant and diverse area with plenty to see and do. Whether you are interested in history, the arts, or simply want to enjoy the great outdoors, there is something for everyone in Clapton.
Hackney Wick: Arts, Humanities and Alternative Culture
The route follows the northern border of Bethnal Green and the southern border of Hoxton and Haggerston. It is located at the border between the London Boroughs of Hackney and Tower Hamlets. Hackney Road has begun to suffer the same gentrification as neighbouring Columbia Road or Broadway Market in recent years. Despite this, a number of abandoned structures remain, notably the Children's Hospital. The road also features striptease clubs such Browns and The Olde Axe (Clifton 2002), a bingo hall, fast-food restaurants, and construction sites. Hackney City Farm is located on the northern (Hackney) side of the road, near the intersection of Goldsmith's Row. Haggerston Park is located next to the farm.
