It’s important that we know exactly what we’re getting into when we move home. A relocation can be a big risk so it’s vital we know as much about the area we are moving to so that we chose a place with everything we want. Luckily for you, Man and Van is here to help you with your move, including providing information of the E5 district.
The Eastern postcode area encompasses parts of the of the Boroughs of the City of London, Newham, Waltham Forrest, Enfield, Tower Hamlets, Barking & Dagenham, Hackney, Redbridge and Epping Forest. It is comprised of twenty smaller postcode sections that range from E1 to E18 and also include E20 and E1W. These subdivisions were created as a way to improve street signs and mail delivery, as well as making navigation and travel simpler and more precise. There are also two non-geographic postcodes here, E77 and E98, that do not represent a specific place but instead are used by businesses for direct marketing and PO boxes.
E5 is one of the smaller section in the Eastern district but it covers Upper and Lower Clapham and parts of Stoke Newington. These are within the Boroughs of Newham or Barking & Dagenham and have the post town address of LONDON. Close by postcode areas include E8, E9, E10, E17 and N16, which means that the area is near to Dalton, Hackney, Victoria Park, Leyton, Walthamstow, Stamford Hill and more. Unsurprisingly, the E5 regional cheaper homes than those closer to London, with flats going for around £209,000 for one bedroom up to about £425,000 for four bedrooms. Houses start at approximately £341,000 for a single room and end at roughly £615,000 for six bedrooms.
There is a good mix of homes here that include loft conversions, Victorian homes, council estates, Edwardian terraces, tree lined avenues, Georgian houses, 1980s homes and flats and more. The main centre of shopping in the area is in Clapton Road, which features various high street and independent retailers. The waterside at the River Lea and Springfield Park are the main open spaces and feature sports clubs, cafes and more. Hackney marshes is the location of eighty-eight back to back football pitches.
There are multiple fine buildings here including the Grade II listed The Church of the Good Sheppard and The New Synagogue, with the latter serving the large Jewish community. Shops and restaurants in Lower Clapton are very diverse, with products and food from all over the world, which is unsurprising given Stoke Newington’s tremendously diverse population. Railway travel here is good, with easy access to the City of London, and there are motorways allowing for easy travel by car.
