Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Old Presbyterian Church Holly Park, Crouch Hill

This church stood on Crouch Hill from 1873 to 1961.

I'm assuming this was taken from the end of Shaftesbury Road. There is still a church on the site and if you explore go Street View, you'll see that there is still a part of the old church remaining. Go up the northernmost spur of Holly Park. (The two spurs used to be joined as a crescent, but for some reason were separated when the areas was developed for public housing in the 1960s).

See this church in its street context here.

I saw a photo  looking up Crouch Hill  in 'Archway Revisited' and remembered passing as a child on the 212 bus, and seeing 2 churches close to each other at Holly Park and this was one of them. It's about where Ilex House is now. Thanks...

PS. Can I use the pic above on their site, please?

Alan, Thanks for your comment. I'd forgotten about this picture when I posted another picture a few weeks ago. That newer one sounds similar to the one you saw in Archway Revisited. I've linked to the other photo under the text above.

May I ask what site you want to use the photo for?
