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 first events in the 2018 programme have been and gone -- they included a five-mile walk through eight of Haringey's conservation areas and nine of its parks; and a tour of the rebuilding, restoration and redevelopment projects in North Tottenham. The other confirmed event in the 2018 programme are listed below; others may be added.

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.
