Exploring Tottenham's Heritage
A series of free events organised by the Tottenham Civic Society
The Society usually organises an annual programme of events which includes walks, led by ourselves or by architects and other experts, around conservation areas, parks and housing estates, as well as visits to various buildings of interest both new and old. (A list of our past events for the eleven years 2006-2016 can be found here.) However, the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) pandemic required all of the planned events for 2020 and 2021 to be cancelled, although we hope to run one event in September as part of the London Open House weekend. Details of this are given below.

Walks in Haringey
Visitors to this page may wish to note that Haringey Friends of Parks have published a number of booklets covering various walks in Haringey. These include the route of the (mostly culverted) River Moselle from Muswell Hill to the River Lea; a walk across the borough from Alexandra Park to Bruce Castle Park; the route of the old Palace Gates to Seven Sisters railway line; and a collection of walks around the borough's parks. These guides can all be downloaded from the HFP website.
