From Monoux and Morris to Beer and Bacon Jam @ Jubilee Hall
Jul 15 @ 8:00 pm

Talk by Joanna Moncrieff. We join qualified guide Joanna Moncrieff on a virtual tour exploring Walthamstow’s fascinating history starting from the childhood home of William Morris and finishing in 21st century Walthamstow in an industrial park with a difference.

Using maps and images Joanna will lead you along the streets of Walthamstow including a set of mews built by a local butcher/property developer, the Greek style theatre hidden within a school and a remnant from Robert Smirke’s General Post Office.

We will virtually visit the real and original Walthamstow Village with its Ancient House, almshouses, workhouse and church and hear how Lord Mayor of London George Monoux was a great benefactor to the area.

Free to members, £1 each non-members payable at the door.

Palmers Green @ Jubilee Hall
Aug 6 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Talk by Adrian Day.

Adrian will take you on a virtual tour of Palmers Green, a ‘textbook’ example of an Edwardian suburb, with a focus on the perhaps surprising number of listed and local-listed buildings that characterise N13. Hear about the wartime Decontamination Shelter, the house where the Lord Mayor of London hosted the Prince Regent together with royalty from Russia, France and Prussia and the church designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott’s son. And of course the famous triple-decker Knight Bus from Harry Potter.
