Pages of Hackney is the newest and most adorable addition to Lower Clapton Rd. The shop supports the local community and it's really to see places pop up like this in the area. On our first visit to the shop, we picked up a copy of 'The Clapton Cookbook'. This beautifully bound but simple cook book discloses many recipes sent in from local people and local businesses.
