Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Introducing a new Friends Group website:


  Haringey has 60 Friends groups, independent associations of local residents and park users, trying to improve their local park or green space. Each group has their own character, issues and priorities, activities and ways of working.

The latest Friends Group on the scene is the Friends of Harringay Stadium Slopes (FOHSS), formed in June 2020. 

 Harringay Stadium Slopes is a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation, between Hermitage Road and Finsbury Park Avenue.

Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINCs) are areas protected through the planning process, having been designated for their high biodiversity value.

The borough has a total of 59 areas designated as SINCs, of these 5 are of Metropolitan importance, 9 of Borough Grade I importance, 13 Borough Grade II and 32 of Local importance. Harringay Stadium Slopes is a Borough Grade II.

Friends Groups work with Haringey Council:

The Haringey Biodiversity Partnership (HBP) is formed of individuals and organisations working to improve biodiversity in Haringey such as Friends of the Earth, the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers, Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, and numerous ‘Friends’ groups associated with local green spaces, see list of Friends Groups below:http://www.haringeyfriendsofparks.org.uk

 The originality of Harringay Stadium Slopes is that it is privately owned and in theory not accessible to the public.  It provides much needed trees and greenery in a dense urban environment and a habitat for birds and bats which in turn visit the gardens.  The Friends Group was formed to preserve it, as part of the green chain that joins Alexandra Palace to St Ann’s railway line at the end of the Stadium Slopes (see map in website).

Please visit the site https://fohss.org  and support us.
