SUMMERHILL ROAD N15

  Snippets from Tottenham's History

Although the 'Summerhill Road' website is predominately focussed on residents past and present and the history of Summerhill Road and the local area, we do from time to time receive snippets of interesting historical information from Tottenham in general. We therefore decided to create this additional section within the 'Menu' as a useful repository for articles of this nature.

We plan to list the items below and you simply need to CLICK on the desired heading to provide a direct link to the article:
