From 1339 until the 18th century Clapton in London was normally referred to as Clopton, meaning the farm on the hill. The Old English term of clop meant lump or hill. This denoted the high ground which rises from the River Lea. Clapton started as a hamlet along the road subsequently known as Lower and Upper Clapton Road, and as the area became urbanised, the extent of the area called Clapton eventually increased to encompass most of the north eastern quarter of the Parish and subsequent Metropolitan Borough of Hackney.
Clapton emerged along the way which in 1745 was called Hackney Lane, part of which ran through Broad Common, which later became Clapton Common. Building spread to meet streets east of the high road and north of Homerton in the 19th century. Hackney Lane came to be known as Lower and Upper Clapton roads, until in the late 19th century the stretch through the common to Stamford Hill was named Clapton Common.
The area, along with Lower Clapton, was known in the 1990s and early 2000s for drug and gun related crimes, gaining it the nickname of the Murder Mile. As well as being featured in the film Bullet Boy, Claptons reputation was highlighted in an episode of Channel 4s TV show Brass Eye, which stated that the petrol station was shoplifted every 30 minutes.
