Walking From Manor House To Harringay Green Lanes

According to Wikipedia this is considered to be a walkable interchange between Manor House and Harringay Green Lanes stations between the Piccadilly and Gospel Oak to Barking lines.

Yesterday I walked it from the Manor House end and took these pictures.

It was a reasonably easy walk, as it’s all downhill. It was also very pleasant going into and out of Finsbury Park and past a cafe and a nursery, that sold plants.

Note the Manor House Pub, which was famous in the 1960’s for its rock music.

Coming back, I took a bus from Harringay Green Lanes to the Angel to do some shopping.

    • I have quite a few memories of the area.

      1. My great uncle, Charlie, used to live close to Harringay Green Lanes and when I was about five, sixty years ago, we used to go there for tea. I remember because he gave me cider with a sugar lump in it. He had been some sort of colonial official and my father used to say he had shot the natives for a living. My father, who was certainly no racist, didn’t approve of his uncle.

      2. One of my father’s employee’s and her husband used to live in the same area and I have very fond memories of Fay, who was very much like an aunt to me.

      3. I seem to remember going to an Ice Show at the arena.

      4. And of course, in those days, we were always taught about the New River.

      5. I can also remember the numbers of pedestrian lights going in, in Green Lanes.

      6. I went to school on the 29 bus.

      7. My father’s print works was in Wood Green and Medlocks was one of his customers.

      It’s funny how little it’s changed in sixty years.
