Cloudesley Estate MapThis is the Cloudesley Association website.  The Association is for all residents of the "Cloudesley Estate" - the area roughly indicated here on the right, bounded by Cloudesley Road, Cloudesley Place, Liverpool Road and Richmond Road.  

Our purpose is to help residents make the most of our community by:

  • Publishing news and other useful information
  • Promoting communication between residents
  • Co-ordinating planning projects and other local initiatives
  • Researching local history
  • Providing useful resources

We've set up a new Coronavirus section of the website under "The Area" heading, here.  So far, it includes general advice about the virus, information about the Caledonian and Barnsbury Covid 19 Mutual Aid Group, advice on Coronavirus-related scams from Neighbourhood Watch, and a leaflet from Islington Council.  Keep safe and remember to wash those hands!



Latest newsletter attached.  The version here on the website is a slightly updated version of the one which was circulated recently and includes some new details about Holy Trinity church.  In particular, note that there will be an Exhibition starting on March 19th at the Islington Museum on St Johns St featuring research carried out by member volunteers into past residents buried in the church crypt.  Do please pay it a visit!  We've also made a couple of additions to the website.  Kieran Garvey has written a really interesting and detailed report into Henry Buckler, who was a pillar of the Cloudesley community in the first half of the 19th century.  And we've added a section on Cloudesley Pubs, Past and Present.  If you have any stories to tell about your favourite boozers, especially those which no longer exist, this is the place to share them!




BAFTA triumphEd Watts, our guardian at Holy Trinity, has now won Best Documentary at the BAFTAs for his film "For Sama".  He was also nominated for the same award at the Oscars, but "we wus robbed".  Congratulations Ed!

We've recently been contacted by Islington Neighbourhood Watch who have provided us with various useful documents which you can find here.  




More website reorganisation.  I've added a new piece on the history of the Cloudesley Estate and the role played by the local charitable trust Cloudesley in the introduction to the "History" section, expanded "About Us" and added to "Maps" (try using the LMA website facility to examine in detail what the Cloudesley Estate looked like just before building began in 1817 - fascinating!).  Apologies for any bugs which may have appeared.  Nick



Amanda and Florence have published the latest Cloudesley Association newsletter, here, full of festive facts.  Also various additions to the website, particularly under "History", and "The Area" - for example a gory postscript to our piece on Thornhill Gardens!  Also an update on the tube noise issue.




I've been reorganising the website.  "History" is a new menu item with the contents of the old Cloudesley History article (which was getting too big) broken up into smaller bits, while the contents of the old "Projects" menu item have been reassigned mostly to "The Area".  Also several other changes.  I hope you like the new version.  If not, or if you spot any bugs or have suggestions for a better organisation, please let me know.  Nick
