A talk by Colin Saunders. The 13 mile route starts at Hadley Green, where the headwaters of Pymmes Brook rise, then descends through East Barnet, Osidge, Palmers Green and Edmonton to finish at Tottenham Hale where the Brook flows into the River Lea.
Colin is the author of The Pymmes Brook Trail which is illustrated with maps and photographs and available from the Enfield Society’s online shop and at Jubilee Hall.
A talk by Joe Studman. London has been circled many times. The Romans built a wall around Londinium but The City boundaries were extended by chains in the 13th century and earthworks in the 17th. Then of course we have the roads, railways and footpaths. This presentation looks at these developments and at some that never happened.
A talk by Simon Saints. Simon is an ambassador for the almshouse movement. His presentation will include pictures set to music and the talk will cover a 1,000 years of fascinating alms history and showcases the many almshouses locally, the UK and world wide.
