Origin

: council housing with boarded up windows]]
Haggerston is first recorded in the Domesday Book as ''Hergotestane'', possibly of Viking origin, and an outlying hamlet of Shoreditch. On Rocque's 1745 map of Hackney, the village is shown as ''Agostone''[http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=45254 'The northern suburbs: Haggerston and Hackney', Old and New London: Volume 5 (1878), pp. 505-24] accessed: 6 December 2006 but by the 19th century it had become part of the growing urban sprawl, with factories and streets of workers' cottages lining the canal.

Today

The proximity to Hoxton and Shoreditch has made the area popular with students and workers in the creative industries, as these nearby areas have grown more expensive. In recent years, escalating property prices have driven commercial art galleries further into east London, which has exacerbated this effect.

A shortage of secondary school places has made the area less attractive to families but this is likely to change with the building of a Academy (England) on Laburnum Street.

Many Vietnamese people, Khmer people and Lao people people have formed communities in Haggerston and nearby Shoreditch. Outside the area, the most visible sign of this is the profusion of Southeast Asian restaurants on nearby Kingsland Road in Shoreditch and on Mare Street in Hackney. There is also a notable Russians community focused on bars and cafés along Kingsland Road. Haggerston is an area and an electoral ward in the London Borough of Hackney, in northeast London, UK.

Amenities

Besides the Regents Canal, Haggerston Park, on the site of a demolished gasworks on Hackney Road, provides much-needed open space in the area. Also in the area is the Hackney City Farm.

The listed building Haggerston Baths, designed by Alfred Cross and opened in 1904, was closed in 2000. In June 2009, after a long community campaign, a £5m grant was announced from the Department for Children, Schools and Families to refurbish and re-open the pool. The building would also contain community facilities and a GP surgery.[http://www.hackneygazette.co.uk/content/hackney/gazette/news/story.aspx?brand=HKYGOnline&category=news&tBrand=northlondon24&tCategory=newshkyg&itemid=WeED25 Jun 2009 15%3A50%3A58%3A487 ''Cash for historic baths—what the Edwardians did for us''] Peter Sherlock 25 June 2009 (''Hackney Gazette'') accessed 27 June 2009

Haggerston School is a Grade II listed building, designed by modernist architect Ernő Goldfinger and built in 1964–65.

The ''All Saints Centre'' in Haggerston Road has a long association with clowning—the church hosting an annual "Clowns service" to commemorate Joseph Grimaldi. It housed the ''Clowns Gallery and Museum'', founded in 1960, and the clown archive. This included props and a unique collection of painted eggs, serving as the 'registration' of clowns' make-up. Much of the collection is now on display at Wookey Hole, but the church retains a small exhibition.
