Local History

A small group of no more than 10 people, for anyone with a general interest in the history of the area and a desire to find out more. Group members can work either together or individually on topics they wish to investigate, and draw up plans for research using published material and/or archival investigation. Each session will review the progress of investigation and amend plans accordingly. Individuals will be encouraged to write up the results of their investigation for publication – though this is not a requirement!

Possible topics will be discussed at the first meeting and might include; What is the history of my house? How did my street develop? When did a village of Crouch End or Muswell Hill (Hornsey has many villages) first appear? How have the borough and local wards changed since first delineated? Other topics can, of course, be investigated, as members wish.

WHEN: Alternate Mondays, 10.00 a.m to 12 noon
WHERE: First meeting at the Old School House in Crouch End, 136 Tottenham Lane, N8 (corner with Rokesly Avenue). This belongs to the Hornsey Historical Society. This venue is virtually certain, but do check this website as it will be closed at some stage for work to be carried out, when we will use a meeting room in Hornsey Library (Crouch End), Haringey Park, N8.
