Clapton Arts Trust and The Old School House
The Clapton Arts Trust are negotiating with the owners (Vision Homes) of the Old School House at 142 Lea Bridge Road, with plans to turn the Victorian school house into an arts centre. We envisage Victorian themed classes & workshops for schools and colleges with an emphasis on local & river heritage in addition to exhibitons & events.

“We envisage Victorian themed classes & workshops for schools and colleges with an emphasis on local & river heritage, in addition to exhibitons & events.”Having just attended an enjoyable Victorian lesson at the Ragged School in Mile End I think this would be a great learning experience for children and adults too!
