A ‘Walk Hackney’ event
An ancient hamlet of Hackney, Dalston developed, east of the Roman’s Ermine Street, from farm settlement to market gardening to brick fields to built-up suburbia by the 1860s. While still rural, Dalston was home to smart big houses, refuges for destitute women and infant orphans and a hospital for foreigners. Industrialisation brought the junction of two railways and factories. Led by Sean Gubbins of Walk Hackney.
