Detail of the 1874 Sale Plan

The new Woodland Road on the 1894 map was marked on the Sale Plan, as a Public Right of Way. This could not be extinguished, so it was converted into a road, which is another right of way, and lined with houses.

Sale Plan of the Manor House, on the corner of Church Street and Bouverie Road

The date not clear but, from the style of houses erected later in Bouverie Road,the sale was probably about 1875.

The grounds covered just over one and a half acres (1 acre, 2 roods and 4 poles). The Sale documents mention a LOFTY BREWHOUSE WITH COPPER. This must have been the building on the corner or the one further along Bouverie Road.

An 1850 lithograph of Newington Hall

The entrance to Stoke Newington Church Street from Green Lanes would have had this house on the right and Clissold House on the left, with the hump of Paradise Bridge just ahead. There was a gatehouse to Clissold House opposite the Paradise Bridge. The bridge has now been removed but the cars still rise and fall, one after the other, over the bump where it used to be.

(Photograph by permission of Hackney Archive)

The 1887 Sale Plan of Holly Lodge, Lordship Park

When the Holy Lodge Estate was sold in 1887 it continued as a private house. Indeed the house must have have been quite new at this time. The house and grounds seem unchanged on the 1914 O.S. map.

1888 Sale Plan of Green Lanes Estate.
(at the corner of Newington Green)


(Photograph by permission of Hackney Archive)

1888 Sale Plan of Green Lanes Estate at the corner of Newington Green.

This is now the China Centre and the row of shops along Green Lanes. It appears from the Plan that the China Centre may have once been a synagogue. The site narrowed at the western end so presumably some other builder developed the piece beyond the shops shown on the map

 


The Newington Green site in 1894

Newington Green Mansions and the
China Mission had been built on the site.

KEITH PERHAPS YOU COULD OUTLINE THE SALE SITE. We need the whole map so that the children can identify Newington Green

The wording is interesting. This was a ‘Bijou Residence’ with One and a Quarter Acres. It is enough to set any developer salivating.
