Follow an ancient track out of Hackney to hear about the ‘common land’ of London Fields, one of London’s few remaining Lidos, the first Jews in Hackney, 18th century asylums for the mentally sick, the Regent’s Canal, and admire the striking 1960s religious murals of John Hayward. Find out how long cricket has been played on London Fields; why the Fields are called London and when one why there were riots on Broadway Market
