Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Haringey First World War Peace Forum is pleased to announce that their new walk booklet has been published.

The walk from Finsbury Park to the Salisbury Hotel in Green Lanes, N4, takes you past houses where conscientious objectors lived, marks meeting places, and points out organisations actively opposed to war between 1914 and 1918.

Along the way you can find the Stroud Green house where the five Walker brothers lived, all at one time or another arrested, court-martialled or given prison sentences, visit the hall where Sylvia Pankhurst spoke against conscription in February 1916, and end the walk at the Salisbury Hotel where protest meetings were held a hundred years ago.

The walk covers about two miles in all, and transport links are close by.

The fully-illustrated booklet is free - thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund grant - and is available from local libraries in Haringey and from Hornsey Historical Society. 

The full title of the booklet is: Conscientious Objection Remembered -a walk exploring the hidden history of Haringey's First World War Conscientious Objectors.

It can be downloaded from the project website: https://conscientiousobjectionremembered.wordpress.com/peace-walks/

If you are unable to find a printed copy and would like one, please send a C5 (229mm x 162mm) size envelope, self-addressed and stamped, to: Conscientious Objection Remembered, c/o 11 Venetia Road, London N4 1EJ.  

NB. For one copy attach a 58p second-class stamp, but 2 copies needs a £1.26 in postage


There is only another couple of weeks to see the exhibition 'The Lost Files' at Bruce Castle Museum, an installation that explores the experience of the conscientious objectors of World War One.
