This group is for anyone interested in starting to find out about local history, or who may have already embarked on a project. It is now run as a general monthly discussion group exploring the interests of the members.
Over the last year some of those attending the group have begun to concentrate on a collective project researching the development of housing in Hornsey in the late 19th and early 20th century. This began by researching the occupants a few houses in the street where they lived, and has now expanded to explore different types of dwellings.
This work has formed the basis of wide ranging discussions determined by the members of the group on the issues arising from their investigations.
During the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant lockdowns the Group, which has been meeting regularly by Zoom during the pandemic and its lockdowns, has been researching the urban development of Hornsey.
