Event Description

Oonagh and Paul are badged guides trained at the University of Westminster.

They have both lived in Hornsey for many years and know the area well. They are organising a series of guided walks drawing on a number of local sources including research from the Hornsey Historical Society.

This is their second ‘From Hay to Houses, Stroud Green DIscovered’vlooks at the area and its history.

Why is it known as Stroud Green?

Why are there so many stables here?

What’s so special about the panels outside the Old Dairy?

Why is there a kink in Upper Tollington Park by the old railway bridge?

Why did the fences go up at Finsbury Park?

Which block of flats caused national excitement when it was built?

Where is Stapleton Hall?

Find out how Stroud Green turned from a nice to place to go for the week end for Elizabethans to one of London’s suburbs, but one with a reputation for radical protest.
