Lower Clapton is a district within the London Borough of Hackney. It is immediately adjacent to Hackney Central - bounded, roughly, by the western side of Hackney Downs (to the west), the Lea Valley (to the east), Clifden Road (to the south) and the Lea Bridge Road (to the north). Lower Clapton is centred on Lower Clapton Road, to the north of which is Clapton Pond, the remnant of the old village green. Clapton Pond and the Georgian architecture Clapton Square are the area's two major conservation zones. Hackney Downs, one of the larger Hackney parks and open spaces, is formally within this district, though many people consider the Downs to be an area of Hackney in its own right. Like many other parts of East London, Lower Clapton is socially diverse and multicultural. Chatsworth Road, which had a regular market until the 1990s, still provides many amenities for people who live in the area. A new Sunday market has been established here since December 2010. The shops and restaurants on Chatsworth Road reflect the diversity of the surrounding streets - offering African, Turkish cuisine, Asian cuisine and Caribbean cuisine produce alongside butchers, bakers and greengrocers. More recent additions include a creperie, coffee shops and a French delicatessen, part of the area's vaunted gentrification in the lead up to the 2012 Olympic Games. Lower Clapton has a relatively large amount of green space for a district of inner London. In addition to Hackney Downs, the area is bordered by Millfields Park, Clapton Park, and Hackney Marshes. Large parts of Lower Clapton look much as they did when the area was first developed in the second half of the 19th century. Most of the housing stock consists of Victorian architecture of various sizes. Several highrise LPS constructions erected by the Council in the late 1960s and early 1970s were demolished in the 1990s to make way for lowrise Local Authority housing, e.g. the Clapton Park Estate. Notable residents have included John Howard (prison reformer), Nathaniel Woodard who was a curate of St. John's, Harold Pinter, Helen Shapiro and Jessica Tandy. Clapton F.C. was the original local football team, being formed in 1878. A number of shootings that took place in the 1990s and early 2000s on Upper and Lower Clapton Road earned the locality the nickname "Murder Mile". During the 2011 England riots, Clarence Road, near the epicentre of the rioting, was the site of Pauline Pearce's Heroine of Hackney speech.
