A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
We all know what lovely places Bowes Park and Bounds Green are to live... but it seems our neighbourhood is not universally loved - or even known.
in a new venture Peter Berthoud, (a qualified and award winning City of Westminster guide .... and a member of this site) will be leading "a small and intrepid group ... exploring an area that few visitors ever have." Tours are planned for August 26th and September 30th.
On our morning in Bowes Park we will see Ovi the dinosaur, an odd collection of eagles, view London's most interesting underpants, see part of The New River and a ramshackle "pop-up" church that has recently been saved, look at some interesting late Victorian and Edwardian architecture, stop off for a drink in one the area's most interesting bars, explore Bowes Park's musical links and view the most disturbing window display in the entire city. There will also be an opportunity to shop for delicious Turkish and Greek foodin some wonderful and very inexpensive local shops.
Makes our area sound very exotic , doesn't it?
