Celebrating The Life And Legacy Of Islington Landowner Richard Cloudesley And The Magical Story Of A Stony FieldCelebrating The Life And Legacy Of Islington Landowner Richard Cloudesley And The Magical Story Of A Stony Field
by BWW News Desk - Apr 26, 2018

In 1517, Islington landowner Richard Cloudesley bequeathed a plot of land known as "The Stony Fields" or "The Fourteen Acre" in perpetuity for a variety of social and religious purposes. Fields grazed by cattle in the 16th century today deliver an income which funds annual grants of £900,000 to local residents in need, local charities, community projects and Church of England churches.

These include health grants for Islington charities and schools, and an award-winning Sustainable Church Buildings Project to reduce the carbon footprint of local church buildings. (more...)
