Information about Stepney
Stepney is derived from a medieval village around St.Dunstan’s church and the 15th century development of the Mile End road. The population grew, but mainly consisted of the displaced and poor, and had a reputation for overcrowding, poverty, and violence. Stepney was mainly a residential area and many of the workers were employed in the docks, and clothing factories, warehouses and shops. More than a 1/3 of its homes were destroyed during the Blitz.
A slum clearance programme in the 1960s resulted in the building of new Tower block housing, and uninspired council estates.
The regeneration schemes taking place in Stepney have been slow to start when compared with other East London areas. There is now an ongoing transformation of the Ocean Estate, and it contains 800 new homes, and a further 1,200 council homes which were extensively refurbished. Several new developments are taking place near to Stepney Green tube, which include one, two, and three bedroom apartments, with access to communal landscaped gardens. Some are available to rent furnished or unfurnished.
Stepney is affordable when compared with other more fashionable areas of East London and is good value for money. A lot of first time buyers have moved into the area, often helped by parent investors, buying for children at university. Stepney Green contains Georgian houses and overlooks a strip of land which is where Richard II confronted Wat Tyler in 1381.
If you are going to university and are waiting to move into a new property, don’t forget that you can store your possessions in secure self storage while you are waiting to move in.
