About Clapton, Upper Clapton and Lower Clapton
Upper Clapton is a district in the London Borough of Hackney and is located across postal districts E5 and E10. It is bounded by the Hackney districts of Stamford Hill to the west, Leyton to the east, Lower Clapton and Lea Bridge to the south and the Haringey district of South Tottenham to the north. To the east is the River Lee, on the other side of which is the expanse of the Walthamstow Marshes, part of which is in the Lee Valley Park. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Upper Clapton area.
As is frequently the case with London districts, these boundaries are quite fuzzy. Western parts of the area are often listed as being part of Stamford Hill, understandable perhaps because the Hassidic Jewish community of Stamford Hill extends across the border, and the imposing New Synagogue is part of the area. And scenic areas such as Springfield Park are also sometimes incorrectly assigned to neighbouring Lea Bridge.
Part of the blame for this may also lie in the fact that Upper Clapton as a whole has traditionally had high crime rates, but it has to be said that much of this has been concentrated around Lower Clapton Road, formerly nicknamed ‘Murder Mile’, which is principally located in neighbouring Lower Clapton. The centre of violent crime has traditionally been around the Lea Bridge Roundabout, which came complete with notorious nightclubs and pedestrian subways that have now been closed. The situation has changed considerably over the past five years due to the gradual gentrification of Hackney as a whole, and with a general decrease in crime, the epithet “Murder Mile” is now more frequently applied to other locations in London.
To the north and east, Upper Clapton is generally peaceful and leafy. It is considered, in many respects, one of the most photogenic districts of Hackney. Read more…
Lower Clapton is a district within the London Borough of Hackney and is located in postal district E5.
It is immediately adjacent to central Hackney – bounded, roughly, by the western side of Hackney Downs (to the West), the Lea Valley (to the East), Clifden Road (to the South) and the Lea Bridge Road (to the North). But it is most sensibly defined as the area roughly centred on Lower Clapton Road, to the north of which is Clapton Ponds, the remnant of the old village green. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Lower Clapton area.
Clapton Ponds and the stunning late Georgian Clapton Square are the area’s two major conservation zones.
Hackney Downs, one of the larger open spaces in Hackney, is formally within this district, though many people consider the Downs to be an area of Hackney in its own right.
Like many other parts of East London, Lower Clapton is socially diverse and vibrantly multicultural. Chatsworth Road provides many amenities for people who live in the area, and in so doing has long been a minor gem of thoroughly useful, unpretentious local charm. The shops and restaurants on Chatsworth Road reflect the diversity of the surrounding streets – offering African, Turkish, Asian and Caribbean produce alongside butchers, bakers and greengrocers.
Lower Clapton enjoys a surprising amount of green space for a district of inner London. Apart from Hackney Downs, Millfields Park and the recreational facilities of the Lea Valley Park are easily accessible from the area.
Large parts of Lower Clapton look much as they did when the area was first developed in the second half of the 19th Century. Most of the housing stock consists of Victorian terraces of various sizes, and as a result the area has become more popular amongst middle-class professionals. Read more…
