Exploring Tottenham's Heritage
A series of free events organised by the Tottenham Civic Society
The Society organises an annual programme of events which includes walks, led by ourselves or by architects and other experts, around conservation areas, parks and housing estates, as well as visits to various buildings of interest both new and old. A list of our past events for the eleven years 2006-2016 can be found here.
The events in our 2017 programme have now been and gone, but there are various forthcoming events organised by other community groups and voluntary associations in which visitors to this page might be interested. A selection is listed below.
StART Annual General Meeting Wednesday 20th September 6.30pm -- 8.30pm
StART is the St Ann's Redevelopment Trust, a group of Haringey residents who want to see the St Ann's Hospital site -- due to be sold for redevelopment as private housing -- used for to benefit the local community. The next few months are crucial for making StART's vision possible; the formal AGM business is therefore being combined with an opportunity to enjoy food together, find out about what is happening with the project, and how people can help shape it.
The AGM will take place at Chestnuts School, Black Boy Lane, London N15 3AS. The venue is accessible to wheelchair users.
StART tour of St Ann's Hospital site Sunday 1st October 11am -- 12.30pm
This tour, organised jointly between ourselves and StART, will provide an opportunity to see the site and hear about the Trust's proposals, which would also conserve and enhance the physical environment -- trees, wildlife, architecture and archaeology. See the StART website for details.
Meet at the Chestnuts Park Cafe, opposite the Hospital main gate, St Ann's Road, N15 3TH.
Great River Rescue Event Saturday 14th October 11am -- 2pm
The Stonebridge Lock Coalition and Lee Valley Regional Park will be taking part in Englandís first national river clean-up campaign, to improve the habitat of the local stretch of the River Lea. Volunteer participants are sought -- no experience is necessary and all tools and safety equipment will be provided, plus refreshments. Suitable clothes for the weather and sturdy footwear are necessary. Email stonebridgelockcoalition at gmail dot com for more details.

Walks in Haringey
Visitors to this page may also wish to note that the Haringey Friends of Parks Forum has published three booklets covering (1) a walk across part of the Borough of Haringey from Alexandra Palace to Bruce Castle, (2) the route of the (mostly culverted) River Moselle from Muswell Hill to the River Lea, and (3) the route of the former Palace Gates railway from Alexandra Palace to Seven Sisters. The booklets are linked (and can all be downloaded) from the front page of its website.
