Three Centuries of Shops and Trades in Hackney Central, focusing on Church Street/Mare Street/The Narrow Way’ – Part One: Early years to Victorian era

Working on the Hackney Time Travel programme with Hackney Historic Buildings Trust in 2022, Alison Palmer, Carolyn Clark and other volunteers have researched every building in Mare Street and its Narrow Way (formerly Church Street), the main retail area in Hackney. They will tell the story of the shops and trades and what has changed, or stayed the same, over 300 years. Richly illustrated, this will be a fascinating journey over time along Hackney’s historic shopping centre.

This part focuses on shops and trades in the early years to the Victorian era and will be presented by Alison Palmer. Please follow our Eventbrite page to be notified when tickets for Carolyn Clark’s second part of the talk go on sale for March 2024, which will focus on the Victorian era to the 1980s.
