Interesting. What’s your reference? With areas like Stoke Newington, there are the old parish and metropolitan borough boundaries for example. For other people it’s the N16 postcode or areas/streets that include the name ‘Stoke Newington’.

We have one at the Black Country Living Museum - they were cast by Cochrane’s ironworks in Dudley, same firm that made all the iron for the Great Exhibition.

8 local history posters in Swan Lane, N4 tell the story of the ambitious and large-scale Woodberry Down estate in north Stoke Newington by the New River Reservoirs. The Woodberry Down health centre was the 1st comprehensive clinic built under the NHS Act.

1884 South Hornsey Local Board drain cover in Finsbury Park Road/Somerfield Road N4. The Brownswood Park area along with other sections of South Hornsey north of Newington Green were incorporated into the Metropolitan Borough of Stoke Newington which was created in 1900.

That’s it for Stoke Newington, the other two (of four) in Hackney are Upper Clapton Road and Victoria Park Road.

Just spotted a 2nd ‘Penfold Postbox’ in Stoke Newington on the corner of King’s Crescent and Queen’s Drive. Apparently there are only 60 nationwide. John Wornham Penfold (1828-1909), surveyor and architect, designed the hexagonal pillar box which was installed between 1866-79

“Previously, we'd believed that Stoke Newington Church Street was the champ, with 29 characters. But SMITFCP trounces it with 36 characters, including spaces and hyphens”

As far as I’m aware it lost its place as the longest street name at some point as people have pointed out to me over the years.

When Church Street was renamed Stoke Newington Church Street in 1937 it became the longest street name in London. In fact, it was so long they had to use two separate street signs to fit the name as I noticed a few days ago.

No. Doesn’t mean much because local listing doesn’t often any form of protection or place any extra requirements on developers. Rather it just identifies heritage assets ahead of any planning application so there is supposedly no dispute.

Nope. It’s locally listed by the council but that doesn’t mean much. (or EH as was) refused listing twice in the 90s.

This is fascinating: connections with a well-known actor, two violent deaths, one a notorious Cold War “incident”...
