Tottenham High Road: Heritage and Restoration
Tottenham High Road – Roman Ermine Street – was an important route in and out of the City of London. In the Middle Ages the area was owned by aristocratic families, from the seventeenth century rich merchants built their homes there. There are 300 nationally and locally listed buildings in the High Road. This presentation will show some of these buildings – Georgian grand houses, the Town Hall complex, housing redevelopments, Victorian and Edwardian terraces, and places of worship, as well as discuss the Spurs redevelopment and rebuilding after the 2011 riots.
Presentation by Joyce Rosser, Secretary of Tottenham Conservation Area Advisory Committee.
8pm, Moravian Church Hall, Priory Road, N8 7HR (W3, 144 and W7 bus routes) Warner Estate Residents Association www.wera-n8.co.uk
All welcome. Free.
Note: this is the second time I’ve done this presentation in the west of the borough – I’d be happy to do it in the east.
