The London Blogger "Diamond Geezer" has just posted a blog about Lordship Rec's Model Traffic Area:
"Most parks have a playground, a few have a model village, but only one has a Model Traffic Area. That's Lordship Recreation Ground in Tottenham, the largest park in N17, which boasts a young person's facility like no other."
If you don't know what he's talking about then take a look at the blog & head over and have a look!
I spoke to someone who said that the model cars were still around in the early 1980's, until Thatcher's cuts to park budgets finally killed them off.
The blog following it is about the Moselle river, which is also visible in Lordship Rec.
