A group for anyone interested in starting to find out about local history, or who may have already embarked on a project, by using the history of Hornsey over five distinct time periods: pre-1800, 1800-1860, 1860-1900, 1900-1965 and post-1965.
The aim of the group is to investigate how Hornsey has changed over time and what sources of information can be used to gain an understanding of the development in each period.
The course will help to answer various questions such as:- Why is it called Hornsey? How many people lived here? When did it become a suburb? How were children educated? Where is it now? These and many other questions will be discussed depending on the interests of the group.
Group Convener : John Hinshelwood
The Group meets at Hornsey Vale Community Centre, Mayfield Road, Crouch End, N8 9LP, usually on the first Monday of every month (except August and December), 10 a.m. – noon.
