Edition 10: Kingsland Road

Man in night club

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.

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, amazing blog!
