N21 Festival 2012 commemorative Calendar
Memories of a Lost Village
Unique Old Winchmore Hill Calendar 2012 - On sale 1st December 2012.
N21.net have produced a unique calendar of Old Winchmore Hill to celebrate the centenary of the Henrietta Cresswell Book, Winchmore Hill: Memories of a lost village.
The Calendar combines written extracts from the one hundred year old book with old images from around the Winchmore Hill village Green area in an informative and interesting way.
The Green was the centre of the old village and we hope that you can relive the history of the area as you look and walk around it. Who knows, perhaps the people of Winchmore Hill will once again call the Broadwalk exit from The Green "Wood Corner". Why don't we all start saying we're going into "The Village" to get some bread or to have a pint ?
Many of the old landmarks have gone but it's still possible to pick out key buildings and areas in the old images. Try to work out where the image was taken from and what is there now each month, point out the history of the area to your children on the way to school , or just wonder at how the area once looked way back. There are stories on every corner and street and you don't need to go into London to find amazing things from history - it's on our doorstep..
The calendar is available from the following quality retail outlets :
