In 1965 the areas of Shoreditch, Stoke Newington and Hackney were merged in order to form the London Borough of Hackney as we know it today.
During the 17th century Hackney and Stoke Newington were mainly rural. In contrast Shoreditch was more built up and had links to London. However it was in the 17th century that all three areas underwent development. With the arrival of the railway in the 19th century further construction took place and the location became a commuter suburb.
In recent years, Hackney has been the site of major regeneration. In 2013, Hackney received £2 million from the Mayor of London’s regeneration fund which is being used to fund the development of a multi-million pound ‘fashion hub’.
