Clissold House, Hackney
LB Hackney, London
Clissold House is a lovely Grecian Doric villa of the 1790’s, in Clissold Park, one of London’s most heavily used public parks. The house was derelict apart from a café in one of the rooms. With the assistance of Heritage Lottery funding, the house has been restored, made fully accessible and converted to house a wide range of community and function uses, including an enlarged and improved café that now opens to the park on two levels. The immediate setting of the house has been transformed by new landscaping, as part of the wider improvements to the surrounding park.
