Campsbourne Lodge was just to the north of Hornsey High Street, roughly where The Campsbourne is today. To the best of my knowledge, no known image of Campsbourne Lodge survives. In a discussion over the last week where a handful of us were trying to decode a picture of the first Alexandra Palace, I suggested that the house in the excerpt above might be Campsbourne Lodge. It's far from certain, but there's a distinct possibility.
I don't want to shoehorn the identification. But if it genuinely is Campsbourne Lodge, that would be very interesting,
If you have the interest and the patience to read through the other discussion, I'd be interested to know your thoughts.
