Hackney Borough Disinfecting Station, Millfields Road E5 - Hackney

Disinfecting station built in 1900 by Gordon and Gunton for Hackney Borough Council. The building is in a very poor condition following years of water ingress. The interior has now been cleared and some urgent works have been carried out, including removal of significant buddleia growth. Further urgent works are needed to ensure the building is weathertight. Discussions about the full repair and long-term use of the building are ongoing, in association with a Building Preservation Trust. These discussions are being guided by an Assessment of Significance prepared by the Local Authority.
