A familiar landmark, St. Augustine's Tower stands in the centre of the ancient village of Hackney and appears on the Borough's coat of arms. It is listed Grade 1, and is therefore in the top 2% of buildings listed in the country.

About Hackney Historic Buildings Trust

Hackney Historic Buildings Trust (HHBT) has had responsibility for the Tower since 1990 and has raised funding to make urgent repairs. The Trust keeps the unique early seventeenth-century turret clock in working order.


The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) awarded £231,000 to help preserve this important but neglected building. Hence, improvements at St Augustine's Tower - including physical repairs to the stonework, improved lighting and glazing, and flat level access to the ground floor - have been carried out.
