Printworks, artworks and raves

Sitting in the shadow of the Olympic site, Hackney Wick is a kind of no man’s land where residential streets and industrial works mix with artists’ studios as well as empty warehouses and raves. Fred Spencer takes you on a historic tour of the Eton Manor clubhouse, and we learn about the eerie world that artists inhabit in the Wick. Dear Old Hackney Wick from the Eton Manor Association shows the pride the area once evoked.
