Cloudesley – Cattle, Churches and Charity

  • 24
  • Oct

During 2017/18, the Islington based charitable trust, Cloudesley is commemorating the 500th anniversary of Richard Cloudesley’s bequest.

To mark the anniversary, the charity has commissioned Clerkenwell & Islington Guides Association (CIGA) to develop a guided walk.  The walk, Cloudesley – Cattle, Churches and Charity, is being offered free of charge at least three times during the anniversary year, with the first two dates set for Saturday 28 October and Saturday 4 November, from 11am-1pm. 

The walk gives a fascinating insight into Richard Cloudesley and his bequest; the urbanisation of Islington and, in particular, the development of the Cloudesley Estate; and the changing ways in which the income from Richard Cloudesley’s two ‘stony fields’ has been used to support Islington over the past 500 years.
