The Estates around Albion Road

These estates have affected the way that Stoke Newington has been developed over the years and will keep coming into the history of the area

Clissold Park This was a private estate and later became a Public Park
The Glebe Field This was the Vicar’s Field. Early vicars were also small farmers and could either run the farm, or let it to a tenant.
The Cubitt Estate Thomas and William Cubitt bought these plots in the 1821 Sale or soon after and held the leases for many years.
Newington Hall and Paradise Row.

They were later developed as Statham Grove and part of the Burma Estate.

The Willow Estate.

This was a very large estate owned by Mt Alexander. When he died in 1891 the estae was sold and rapidly developed into Clissold Crescent, Carysfort Road and the Industrial Estate now redeveloped as Red Square.
