Stepping Stones Farm was set up in 1979 as a result of community consultation. Local residents, schools, churches & community groups were consulted and a small patch of land was secured for the farms use. Since then we have doubled in size thanks to London Borough of Tower Hamlets giving us the derelict land that forms our square of 4.2 acres

1991 was a scary year for the farm as our core funding was removed by the then Liberal council but after the return of Labour to the council funding was restored although at a largely reduced amount. As a result the farm no longer has any paid workers and is totally volunteer run.

The site that the farm currently occupies has a long and varied history dating back to the 17th century.

The site of Worcester house (locally known as King Johns Palace) is buried under our cow field and is awaiting an excavation to see what is actually there.

we also have three sets of ruins, the old Sunday school  we also have a number of London plain trees around the site one of which must be at least three hundred years old.
