A walk led by Crouch End Walks

Meet at World’s End Pub, 23 Stroud Green Road N4 and finish at the Stapleton Hall Tavern an hour later.

You’ll see Haringey’s oldest building (dating back to the early 1600s), find out the story of the sculptures on the Old Diary and why Finsbury Park is so far from Finsbury. Stroud Green is a slightly anonymous area somewhere between Finsbury Park and Crouch End. Centuries ago it was a small marshy hamlet, Stroud meaning a wet area. In time as London grew so it became known for its fine hay that fed the capital’s horses.

Once Finsbury Park was built and the station followed, so Stroud Green was swallowed up by the housing built in the growing suburbs around the many station that sped the commuters to their work in the City.

In time the area became quite poor and gained a reputation for its radical politics. Students from North East London Poly occupied the houses around the Faltering Fullback to save them from demolition, the Black Parents’ Movement established their schools here as a response to poor education for their children. Yet only a century earlier the people of Stroud Green fought to prevent the building of a state school.
