This is a copy of some original film taken circa 1970. The focus is Broomfield park and it is wonderful to see Broomfield House in all it's glory.

Southgate's rare Edward VIII Pillar Box

Posted on December 20, 2013 at 11:00 0 Comments

It’s funny how so much stuff on our streets just gets ignored – lamp posts, telegraph poles – those funny phone cabinets that you sometime see people tinkering inside even the bright red pillar boxes.

It’s around this time of year – the last posting day for…


War Memoral at St. John the Evangelist Palmers Green.

The war memorial at St John the Evangelist church in Palmers Green has had an overhaul and clean-up in time for this year's Remembrance Week.


The Palmers Green war memorial is a very fine piece of work. Carved from coarse limestone it stands around 12 feet high on a wide stepped base. …

Hello Richard,
Many thanks for adding me to the community website... I never knew this local resource was available.

I am a local business woman and maybe interested in advertising my business here but I was interested if it is possible to advertise my car for sale on here as it is a good family car 7 seater... Anyway if you could let me know what the etiquette is for these sorts of things that would be great.

Kind regards

Morning and thanks for the welcome Richard! I am really looking forward to getting involved in the site and the community and am already active in the area. I am a prospective council candidate for the Lib Dems and as such would be grateful if you could put a link to my profile where I am mentioned on this page: Thanks so much.

Hi Richard,

Thank you for the welcome and information – it certainly looks like there's plenty going on. Look forward to moving to Bounds Green in January.

That's it ... the Springfield Tavern. I didn't know Bowie appeared at the Intimate. The former Spurs player Bobbie Smith lived in the block of flats opposite but when I lived down the road in Woodberry Avenue he had become almost down and out and would scrounge things from the local shops. Sad really but he only had himself to blame as he'd apparently turned to gambling and lost his job as a mini cab driver through drinking.

Not been down there for some considerable time now. Until he retired ... I was a patient of Michael Stern at the dentists opposite the Odeon above Woolwich B/S I think it was. He was also a live wire in amateur dramatics at the pub on the left just before you get to Bounds Green Station (was it the Park Tavern or something?) and also prior to this at the Intimate Theatre.

As a further interesting aside of well known people that lived in the area; when I was a kid in Park Ridings, the Spurs players Johnny Brooks and Eddie Clayton had digs at the top of the street and would sometimes kick a few balls with my mates and me when we played football in the street. In those days of course (around 1957) there weren't many cars about.
