Haringey Council’s £2.3m project to restore 28 historic buildings in north Tottenham is underway with the start of conservation work. This will improve the appearance of historic buildings to create an attractive shopping destination at the northern gateway to Tottenham and involve the wider community in caring for it. It is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund (external link) and local businesses.
Alongside this important conservation work, there is a programme of complementary activities including oral history, talks, tours and guided heritage walks which will offer opportunities for schools, colleges and local people of all ages to learn about building conservation and engage with the project.

Student Film Project
Students from Haringey Sixth Form worked with Chocolate Films to produce a short film about north Tottenham and the diversity of the communities that live, work and play there. The film takes you along the High Road - present and past - and features interviews with local residents and businesses.
