Newington Green in this postcode covers the south side of the Green.

Appearing in the Domesday Survey of 1086, it then formed part of the demesne of St Paul’s Cathedral. In the 13th century, The then ’Newton’ became split between Newington Green and to its north Stoke Newington, and to its east Newington Barrow (later called Highbury).

Originally the main was agriculture - latterly growing hay for nearby London. The name Newington Green was first mentioned in 1480 and was fringed by cottages, homesteads and crofts on the three ’Islington’ sides.

In the 16th century, the area became connected to the court of Henry VIII - the king used a house on the south side of the Green as a base for hunting bulls, stags and boar which roamed the surrounding forest.

In 1535, Thomas Cromwell took up residence at Canonbury Tower to the south. From there he organised the Dissolution of the Monasteries.

Several streets in the area took their name from the Tudor period: King Henry’s Walk, Boleyn Road (formerly Ann Boleyn’s Walk), Wolsey Road and Queen Elizabeth’s Walk.

Dalston Kingsland

Kingsland railway station was first opened on this site in 1850, but was replaced by Dalston Junction in 1865. The current station was opened in 1983.

Kingsland gets its name from the hunting grounds of a Tudor-era royal residence at Newington Green – "King’s Lands".

It was originally a small roadside settlement centred on the Old North Road near to the junction with Dalston Lane.

In 1672, Kingsland had 28 householders assessed for hearth tax. It expanded in the 18th century along Kingsland Road and by 1724 had five inns. The local parishes lobbied Parliament in 1713 for the right to set up a Turnpike Trust, to pay for the necessary maintenance to the North Road. Gates were installed at Kingsland and Stamford Hill to collect the tolls. Larger scale development began in 1807, and a new estate was created on Lamb Farm, to the south and west of the Dalston Lane junction.

The ’Lock Hospital’ for lepers was founded in 1280 by the City of London, as one of ten located on the main roads from the City. From 1549, the hospital was administered by St Bartholomew’s Hospital, and treated infectious diseases. By 1669, there were six wards for women only since male patients were sent to Southwark. The hospital was rebuilt in 1720, but closed in 1760. At the closure of the hospital, local people petitioned to keep the hospital chapel open. In poor condition, it was demolished in 1846.

Since the opening of Dalston Junction station, the area has become known as Dalston, which was originally further east.
