Upstairs there is a bedroom area and large storage space in the eves. The house also benefits from wood flooring throughout as well as use of a communal garden area.

The Almeshouses are made up of 5 separate dwellings including the Chapel, which is believed to have been the smallest Chapel in England. They were erected in 1665 with money left by Thomas Wood, who was born in Clapton in 1607 and became Bishop of Lichfield after the English civil war and have recently been fully restored by the current owner.

From the wealth of independent shops, cafes and eateries on your doorstep, to the high end fashion outlets at Westfield, The Bishop Wood's Almeshouses are perfectly positioned for all of your needs. Whether you are in the mood for the local Sunday Market on Chatsworth Road, a walk around the green open spaces of Victoria Park or a swim in the London Fields lido, this location caters for all. Hackney Central and Hackney Downs stations are a stone's throw away, each offering excellent transport links.
