Edition 10: Kingsland Road

Man in night club

photo by Briony Campbell

Buzzing, maddening, chaotic, dirty, dangerous and fun is how locals describe this section of the A10 between Old Street and Dalston Junction.  Hackney poet Shane Solanki has written us a song all about the Kingsland Road, starting a bit further north, up in Stamford Hill.  We meet some of the stall holders at Kingsland Waste street market to find out what drags them out of bed even on the bleakest and rainiest Saturday mornings. Then it's down to Crooked Billet Yard to meet Oliver Bulleid of Cox Bulleid Architects for a tour of their Shoreditch Prototype House - a model for low energy living in dense urban environments.

To end, photographer Briony Campbell on her current project documenting the street's nightlife - she takes us to meet the proprietors of Abel’s Social Club, Passing CloudsStoke Newington International Airport, and Visions Video Bar.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    taboo matter but typically folks don't speak about these issues.
    To the next! Kind regards!!

    Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple
    tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know
    where you got your theme. Many thanks

    Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding
    skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
