Sash Windows Hackney

Sash windows are a traditional style of glazing unit seen in many Hackney properties. Traditionally manufactured from wood, uPVC replacement sash windows have become popular due to the increased lifespan, design and colours available. When compared to the cost of replacing wooden sash windows. uPVC wins hands down. There is no need to compromise on the aesthetic of your property as all traditional styles and shapes are available in uPVC with easy maintenance operation.

Each sash tilts inwards for ease of cleaning. Requiring only a wipe with a damp cloth, the frames and glass can be cleaned from inside the property, which is particularly convenient for windows that are installed on upper floors. All our windows come with traditional features such as sash horns, handles and catches.

Facts about Hackney

History

Hackney is a mostly low-lying area in proximity to two rivers, the Lea and the Hackney Brook. This would have made the area attractive for pastoral and arable agriculture, meaning most of the area is likely to have been deforested at an early date. There is archaeological evidence for settlement and agriculture as far back as the Stone Age.During the late Iron Age, the area was part of the territory of the powerful Catuvellauni tribe.

There will have been a network of probably minor, local roads in Hackney before the Romans conquered southern Britain after 43AD, but the areas proximity to the provincial capital, Londinium, meant that it was soon crossed by two large long-distance routes. The first was Ermine Street (modern A10) which emerged from Bishopsgate and headed north to Lincoln and York.

General Info

Hackney is a district in East London, England, forming around two thirds of the area of the modern London Borough of Hackney, to which it gives its name. It is 4 miles (6.4 km) northeast of Charing Cross, and includes part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Historically it was within the county of Middlesex.

In the past it was also referred to as Hackney Proper to distinguish it from the village which subsequently developed in the vicinity of Mare Street, the term Hackney Proper being applied to the wider district.
