De Beauvoir lies in today’s London Borough of Hackney and is still sometimes called ‘Kingsland’ because Henry VIII hunted here. It is distinct from but nestled up close to Dalston, London Fields, the Regent’s Canal, Shoreditch, southeast Islington and Mildmay. This walk winds through the early/mid-19th century streets with its beautiful central square, an historic canal basin, lost churches, the sites of both an old Manor House, and in contrast a cattle market, plus much more.
