Dalston is a district in the London Borough of Hackney, England, in Inner London and located in postal district E8. Its historical borders are Kingsland Road and Kingsland High Street in the west, London Fields in the east, Downs Park Road in the north and the Shoreditch parish boundary in the south. Its main shopping street, Kingsland High Street, follows the route of the Roman Ermine Street, and has the road number A10. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Dalston area.
Modern Dalston is often seen as the area surrounding both sides of Kingsland High Street, even though some of the west side is within the London Borough of Islington. As such, it bestrides the main route north from the City of London.
The village was one of four small villages within the Parish of Hackney, Dalston, Newington, Shacklewell, and Kingsland that were all grouped for assessment purposes, together having only as many houses as the village of Hackney. The village of Kingsland was around the crossroads at Dalston Junction, and the centre of the small village of Dalston was further to the east, along Dalston Lane. By 1849, it was described as a recently increased suburban village, with some handsome old houses, and by 1859 the village had exceeded its neighbour and with the railways and continuous building, the village of Kingsland disappeared.
While any investment in an area is generally a good thing, the gentrification of an area only two miles north of the City has led to a rapid increase in the price of property. This has caused resentment from residents priced out of the area in which they had been raised. The process of change has been accelerated since the East London Line extension (to be renamed the East London Railway on completion) and the reopening of Dalston Junction Station was confirmed in the run-up to London’s successful bid to hold the 2012 Olympics.
The ancient shopping street of Broadway Market, to the South East of the district, boasts a wide selection of ‘up and coming’ boutiques, pubs and cafes. Thanks to these, and the successful Saturday Farmer’s Market, this area immediately adjacent to London Fields is regarded as thriving. Read more…
