This road sign, named after slave-owner Sir John Cass, was removed in December 2020 as part of Hackney Council’s ‘Review, Rename, Reclaim’ initiative. Following community consultation, the gardens were renamed Kit Crowley Gardens.

Hackney and the Transatlantic Slave Trade
We are re-developing our school session about Hackney’s links with the Transatlantic Slave Trade following Hackney Council’s ‘Review, Rename, Reclaim’ project. We would like to hear your thoughts about how you teach the Transatlantic Slave Trade at school and what you think is important to be included in this session. To get in touch please email
