About Hackney Historic Buildings Trust: Projects

Hackney Historic Buildings Trust has been responsible for the protection and conservation of a wide range of buildings in the London Borough of Hackney. Working with English Heritage, Hackney Council and other local and national organizations the Trust has assured the maintenance and continued use of buildings such as Hackney's oldest building St Augustine's Church Tower, St Bartholomew's Vicarage in Dalston and perhaps it's most important building; the Round Chapel which HHBT owns and runs as a community and arts space.

HHBT has acted on behalf of English Heritage and LB Hackney as project managers for feasibility studies for the repair and conservation of Maberley Chapel, Balls Pond Road, N1; The Portico, Linscott Road, E5: the Landsdown Club, Mare Street, E8 and Pond House, Lower Clapton Road, E5. In recent years the Trust has been active at St Augustine’s Tower, with the restoration of the Worship Street Drinking Fountain and with the reburbishment and sale of two houses at nos. 27-9, New North Road.

Current projects include the restoration of St Augustine’s Tower where a HLF grant has allowed a major refurbishment during 2005-6 and on-going fundraising for further works to The Round Chapel. The Trust continues to seek new projects to work on and is currently exploring options to preserve a 19th century Grade II mission school in Lea Bridge Road, E5.

The Trust opens the doors to all its buildings on London Open House Day, as well as for organized tours, walks and to student groups. It also provides information and advice to the general public about historic buildings and conservation in Hackney.

Volunteer trustees who meet every month oversee the management of the Trust. They are assisted by two staff; an administration manager who manages the Trust and takes forward other initiatives and projects, and a caretaker who maintains the buildings managed by HHBT.

The Trust is constantly seeking volunteers to take part in the heritage projects within Hackney.
