In 2015 Hackney City Farm was awarded funds by Heritage Lottery Fund to sort through and archive items found in the Farm cellar.

These can be viewed at the Dalston CLR James Library, including:

  • records of meetings and events
  • photographs
  • posters
  • drawings
  • audio interviews
  • video interviews
  • maps

They show the area, 1A Goldsmiths Row, from when the Farm was started in 1984, through to the present day and include older maps and photographs.
