Our beautiful area is roughly rectangular, bounded by Balls Pond Road to the north, the Regent’s Canal to the south, Kingsland Road to the east and Southgate Road to the west.

With its attractive, wide Victorian streets, good-sized gardens and traffic-calming road closures, De Beauvoir was saved from demolition in the 1970s by the De Beauvoir Association.

Today’s DBA aims to be as inclusive as possible, with an open membership and a committee that’s elected at our autumn AGM.
