Föcked Translation (413): I posted to a light-hearted blog called Fucked Translation over on Blogger from 2007 to 2016, when I was often in Barcelona.

Neither Lower Clapton nor the wider Clapton area have ever been an administrative unit and consequently their extent has never been formally determined, however Lower Clapton can be described as closely approximating to the southern part of the E5 postal district.
