Hackney Wick: A mudpatch in the middle of nowhere.

  • Hackney Wick Overground Station, Wallis Road London E9 5LN United Kingdom (map)

If we are to believe a 1978 episode of Dr Who, this describes Hackney Wick. Come along and form your own judgement and find out about its distinguished industrial and sporting past (the 2012 Olympics weren't the first to get world records in the Wick), its links to Eton College, a historic murder mystery, fish, peanuts, biscuits and a Big Breakfast. See how rapidly it is changing and yet still maintaining a very specific character.
