If you think moving house is an emotional journey, spare a thought for Diane, who is finally selling her home in London’s Hackney, that’s been in her family for 120 years. Four generations have lived here – from a time when washing weekly in an old tin bath by the fire was the norm, right up to the present day.
Her great-great grandparents set down roots here in the late 1890s, along with 12 children. We follow Diane as she makes the tough decision to let go of part of her family legacy.
We travel back in time with Diane to meet her family members and to follow her own transformation from humble east London beginnings to landlady in one of the country’s hottest property markets.
