Urban Lab Walk: Hackney — Aftermath of Regeneration

We met at Hoxton Station, where the fictional journey of the 392 bus begins.
As we entered Hoxton Street we were reminded of its role in popular culture, including in the video for The Verve’s ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ (right).
The ‘I ❤ Hoxton’ statue, voted to be saved from removal by 51% of local residents.
Passing over the Regent’s Canal we stopped by the De Beauvoir Estate, completed in 1971.
