London E8 and N16 for Dalston
The main post code for the district of Dalston is London E8, and in 2009, the Guardian referred to it as the “unlikely owner of Britain’s coolest postcode”, which was probably based on the number of night clubs, exotic produce and shopping experience in the area. Part of Dalston is also covered by London N16. The whole of Dalston is under the London Borough of Hackney.
The eclectic mix of culture and interests in London E8 means that our London E8 and N16 storage clients range from businesses with stock holdings, musicians, cultural events, and home owners. Anything can be stored provided it is not flammable, perishable or illegal.
Information about Dalston
Dalston is located in the borough of Hackney, and it is one of the most densely populated wards, and does not have a lot of green space. 75% of residents live in flats and do not have access to private green space. Overcrowding is 4 times the national average, so there are various current projects, managed by social enterprises, which are creating new green spaces and pathways.
A leper colony founded in the area in 1280, and in 1549, it was attached to the Chapel of St. Batholomew as an outhouse. Thankfully the leper colony no longer exists! During the 18th and 19th centuries, the area changed from an agricultural one to an urban one.
Nowadays, like so many districts in East London, Dalston is going through a period of regeneration due to the re-opening of Dalston Junction station, and the development required to host the Olympic Games in 2012. Wealthy city traders live alongside artists and the established Caribbean and Turkish communities. The area has become very popular with young people who like the night life.
Some new developments such as Dalston Lane Terrace which involves the demolition of a terrace of Georgian houses and shops have been contest by local residents for 10 years. The prices for many new builds are often higher that more established areas in West London.
