Who ever knew such a gem lay within Haringey!
There has been a lot if filming at St Ann's Hospital lately and I found the Admin Building open one day so finally had the chance to wander into the Stables. It is much loved by older NHS staff on site and had been on my wishlist to visit for some time.
It is one of the most exciting spaces I've been into but it is currently due for demolition under the current redevelopment plans by Catalyst Housing.
Local gems being destroyed by outsiders does not sit well with me. This space must be retained as public space for the local and wider Haringey community.
Keep an eye out in 2022 for the filming productions - Ragdoll and the Midwich Cuckoo
I expect the site of the spring is the area of blue shown in the surveyor's 1891 map. That's not hard to credit. I know there was underground water elsewhere in the area - see the text in this article above and below Fig. 18). But the lake is a tough one to take on board.
