Overhanging hedges and garden plants

From David: A great deal has been said about cars parking onpublic footpaths, robbing pedestrians of the outer portion of the pavement. But how much has been said or done about overhanging front gardens, robbing pedestrians of the inner portion, and often spiking or scratching us into the bargain? The law is quite clear that a front wall or fence is the boundary of a front garden. See Section 154 of the Highways Act 1980. Yet numerous front gardens overhang far onto the pavement, sometimes from…

Council elections

The turnout in Alexandra Park Ward for this election has once again been the highest in the borough, which is an interesting comment on our engagement with local issues.

The Water Game film - a year on.

Hi APN

First of all happy Xmas and New Year to you all. And wishing you all a better 2022. This too shall pass…

I am sure a lot of you will remember David Rennie of Crescent Road (now living with his daughter in Southend) who created the Water Game, which he ran for many years at the Palace Gates Summer Fete and Fins Feste (plus others).

About a year ago I completed a film about David and his invention. It was uploaded on to Youtube and a website for it was created (see…

The Hornsey Enclosure Act, by David Frith

This slim, larger format book is very well produced, like all Hornsey Historical Society's books, and well illustrated with maps, portraits of the bigwigs involved, and landscape paintings. There is a list of all those receiving land allocations at the end, with an indication of the locations of the plots. The advert in the right column of this website gives a link to the HHS webpage, with more details.

Although many of us don't live in quite the area covered by Hornsey Historical…
