Found – Grey Parrot!

Grey parrot found this morning by the shops at junction between Alexandra Park Road and The Avenue. Looks tired, depleted, fed up and needs to be back with its owner! It’s safe with me for the time being.It has a ring-tag, but I am not capable of handling the bird to read it. If anyone can and/ or has a temporary cage for it, please make contact.ColinSee More

Hi Colin - I will happily accept your challenge as it may provide some missing parts of the jigsaw as I research the history of the top end of Bounds Green (particularly the industrial history around Cline Road).

 

I've often thought that the estate opposite Homebase was the remnant of something bigger, and remember a pub there now long demolished (forgot the name tho).

Thanks in anticipation.
