Follow the wooden brick road!

For a few days - or maybe weeks - you have the chance to see the orginal Myddleton Road.  The surface was wooden bricks.  A patch of the tarmac has come off in about the middle of the road just east…Continue

Follow the wooden brick road!

For a few days - or maybe weeks - you have the chance to see the orginal Myddleton Road.  The surface was wooden bricks.  A patch of the tarmac has come off in about the middle of the road just east of Ayta Supermarket.  Take care ..... but if you look at this from above you can see some of the original bricks that made Myddleton Road in the 1880s.  Amazing condition!See More

The Swifts are back!  Saw 3 swooping around over their favourite nest eaves in Myddleton Road this morning.  If you speak Swiftese.... please tell them that I have had two nesting boxes installed in my roof - at the top end of Whittington Rd.  Hurrah for Summer!See More

New River works will close The Green Space and part of Path

You may have seen the notice on the gate to the New River Path on Whittington Road.  That section of the Path and the play and leisure space at the end of Russell Road will be closed for about 14 weeks from April 6th.  Barhale will be doing clearing, inspection and maintenance work on the two culverts that carry the river under the A406.  A plan of the culverts is attached to this - so you can see how it works.  They will close one culvert, then clean it out and do any necessary works while the…See More

Children's play

It has become even more clear as the months have passed that our Community Gardens and play areas are much used and loved by so many children.  Finsbury Gardens has been so well used that sadly there is a very muddy area around the Lizard, and the two hillocks are in a poor shape.  Things will have to be sorted in a while.  But on my regular litter-picking walk it has been a pleasure that makes me laugh out loud to see some of the charming and fun things the kids have done and made.  I attach a…See More

Bang went 2020!

On New Year's morning there was a huge heap of empty fireworks boxes piled up under the tree at the top of the steps to the New River Path off Myddleton Rd.  The excellent waste collection teams do not collect from there..... so I started to take the boxes out to the road bin.  Two young women came along from the Path with their dog... and kindly helped me carry them all out.  We shared our criticisms of people who don't clear up their own mess, and how much money these must have cost.  One…See More

Free Christmas Tree on Myddleton Road

Someone has 'dumped' a good Norway Spruce Christmas tree by the fence between the Gym and number 58-60 Myddleton Rd.  I gather that it does not belong to anyone in 58-60.  It would save you about £25 if you went and picked it up!See More

10 years ago I wrote a short piece for some friends about daffodils and Bounds Green. I was deleting a load of old files and found it.  As it is daffodil time again, and there are even more people here escaping wars 'back home' , I am 'sharing' it wider. 

"Yesterday something happened that sort of woke me up a bit.  So I thought I would tell you about…
