West Hackney - History & Heritage

Thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund, and to the West Hackney Parochial Charity, West Hackney has been able to take part in the nationwide All Our Stories project.

St Paul’s West Hackney teamed up with TimeLine to collect up the stories of people, places and events you can read in this online resource.

Just click on the PDF link below to read the stories, tales and memories for yourself.

There are stories about life in and around West Hackney since the parish was created almost two hundred years ago. Some of the tales are memories that people have passed on to us, to make sure they are stored safely; others have been discovered by research in archives, libraries and online resources.

We have included some quizzes about our local history and heritage. Plus you will find out answers to questions like these: how many tiles were used to decorate the outside of the Aziziye Mosque – and how long did it take?
