South Shoreditch lies just north of the City of London. The area's greatest architectural legacy arises from the furniture trade, and for almost a century Shoreditch dominated the industry as the major centre of furniture manufacturing and wholesale selling. In 2002, English Heritage formed a partnership with Hackney Council, the Greater London Authority and other agencies to present a coordinated response and a strategic planning framework for South Shoreditch. This publication draws upon a comprehensive appraisal of the character and significance of the area.
