Hackney Town HallHackney Town Hall was built in Mare Street East London. in the 1930s. The old Town Hall was demolished and a formal square and gardens were constructed in front of the new Town Hall.The Town Hall and Square were constructed as part of an overall design by Lanchester and Lodge and are part of Hackney’s architectural history. It is one of the few examples of 1930s Town Hall designs in which walls, gardens, lighting and tree planting were incorporated as part of the original design and which are still, in large measure in tact. This design is, from our research, unique in the London, and probably the national context.
