Harringay online

Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

In 1935 Challen, one of Harringay's several piano manufacturers, built the largest piano in the world at their Hermitage Road factory.

It went missing almost forty years ago. The Guardian newspaper event picked up my story on it back in 2011 and they couldn't get any leads.

Then a few weeks back, I got an email out of the blue from someone who told me that he'd tracked it down to a farm in France. He's now bought it and returned it to England for restoration.
