Hornsey-Tottenham Boundary Marker on Seymour Road


This shows the boundary between the old boroughs of Tottenham and Hornsey, on Seymour Road about one third of the way up from Green Lanes.

You can also see where the pavement ends showing the end of the better laid Tottenham pavements.

The photo is from 2008/09. So I hope the marker is still there

Between numbers 94 & 96 on the south side, matched by another at 93 & 95 to the north.  In Streetview I think we can only see the holes.  I fear they have gone to a Chinese smelter, like so many mile posts and way markers.

I think there is something very similar to this on Lothair Road North.

It may not have been Seymour where I took this. However, I'm pretty sure I saw that there's still one on the north side of Seymour earlier in the week.

One side of Seymour is N8 and the other is N4

Didn't know that.

I`ve never checked it out but it`s what I`ve been told for years off a number of people

Postmen probably get confused I would imagine

If you think about it it`s where the New river enters the `Ladder` so Historically it may well be the division

Good thought, but I think it pre-dates that. This map shows the two don't quite coincide.
