Harringay escorts

Harringay (pronounced ) is a residential area in the London Borough of Haringey in North London, in the United Kingdom. It is centred on the section of Green Lanes (London) running between the New River (England), where it crosses Green Lanes by Finsbury Park, and Ducketts Common, near Turnpike Lane.

Location

The boundaries of Harringay form a rough boot shape in the extreme southern centre of the borough.[http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&om=1&msa=0&msid=114664306441918231955.000001135d2f4be1a5fb1&ll=51.577443,-0.10334&spn=0.041605,0.087547&z=14 Google Map showing the boundaries of Harringay] The western boundary of Harringay is formed by the Great Northern Railway (Great Britain). The northern boundary is to the south of Turnpike Lane, running parallel to it, somewhere between Sydney Road and Fairfax Road. In the northeast, the boundary roughly corresponds with a line drawn between the south of Duckett's Common and the north end of Warwick Gardens. A line due south of this point, as far as Eade Road, forms the eastern boundary. Southeast of here a line to Finsbury Park completes the southeastern limits. Finsbury Park is officially part of HarringayWard boundaries classify the park as being within Harringay Ward - [http://www.haringey.gov.uk/map_of_parks_and_open_spaces.doc Haringey Council Map showing the ward boundaries]. and forms the south western boundary.

Including the park, Harringay has an area of about from north to southMeasured between OS Grid Refs TQ 315 896 and TQ 315 868. and , at its widest point, from east to west.Measured between OS Grid Refs TQ 321 886 and TQ 312 886.[http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&om=1&msa=0&ll=51.587096,-0.104156&spn=0.018052,0.025921&z=15&msid=114664306441918231955.000001135d2f4be1a5fb1 Google map showing Harringay's boundaries].

Locale

Harringay's main shopping street, Green Lanes (London), is a busy, cosmopolitan high street. Some shops have a long established presence, like Disney's furniture store, which has traded there since 1913. Others reflect the more cosmopolitan nature of Green Lanes and include a large number of Kurdish people & Turkey bakeries, grocers, cafes and a growing cluster of restaurants. There are several pubs including the Grade II listed[http://www.imagesofengland.org.uk/details/default.aspx?pid=1&id=201343 English Heritage Website] and Nikolaus Pevsner noted ''The Salisbury''. Part of the 1980 film ''The Long Good Friday'' For additional information see: [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081070/ IMDb website - The Long Good Friday] and the 1992 biopic of Charlie Chaplin. For additional information see: [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103939/ IMDb website - Chaplin] were shot there. Towards the southern end stands the well-preserved, Victoriana-laden ''Beaconsfield'' public house. Opposite is the Arena Shopping Park with handful of national Chain store outlets, a Sainsbury's supermarket, and one of Britain's first "drive-thru" McDonald's restaurants.

A large section of the eastern side of Green Lanes is called Grand Parade. Interrupted only by the gaps introduced by the residential roads running eastwards, Grand Parade runs for nearly half a kilometre from just north of Harringay Green Lanes railway station to St Ann's Road.Measured between OS Grid Refs TQ 318 882 and TQ 317 887.

Whilst the main road feels definitely cosmopolitan, the population of the surrounding streets is somewhat more homogeneous (See Harringay#Demographics section.). The streets to the west of Green Lanes are known as the 'Harringay Ladder' (due to their similarity to a ladder when seen on a map). The streets to the east behind Grand Parade are known as 'The Gardens'. To the south of 'The Gardens' and Sainsbury's is Harringay's 'Warehouse District'; to the north is "Woodlands Park'.http://www.harringayonline.com/page/harringay-vs-haringey-vs-harringaygreenlanes Page on Harringay Online showing map of Harringay's sub-districts] Harringay (pronounced ) is a residential area in the London Borough of Haringey in North London, in the United Kingdom.

The only waterway still running above ground is the man-made New River (England), constructed in 1619 to bring water into London from Hertfordshire. However, two natural rivers still flow through Harringay beneath the ground. These are just two of the many Spring (hydrosphere)s and streams that used to flow through this part of London from the high ground to the west, down into the River Lea. Stonebridge Brook ran above ground meandering eastwards just to the north of the old Harringay House. It crossed the estate, running roughly beneath present-day Effingham and Fairfax Roads, ran along Green Lanes (London) for a short way and then eastwards north of St Ann's Road and on to the River Lea.1869 & 1894 Ordnance Survey Maps. Although still flowing underground today, the Harringay section was fully culverted by 1885. Hermitage Brook flowed roughly along the southern boundary of the western part of Harringay and then, staying close to its southern edge, under where the Arena Shopping Park stands today. It was eventually culverted and now flows underground just to the south of the shopping park.

History

Historical outline

In the Ice Age Harringay was on the edge of a huge glacial mass that reached as far south as Muswell Hill. ), tarmac to the west (ex-Municipal Borough of Hornsey)]] The area was then largely covered with forest until the Middle Ages when it was developed as agricultural land. From 1750 to 1880 Harringay experienced the pressures of the burgeoning population in London. Gradually inroads into the pastoral landscape were made, first for the leisure and then for the settlement of Londoners. By 1900 Harringay had become a respectable outer London suburb with all the land built over and only Finsbury Park remaining as a hint of its former character. Identified as a single unified urban area from 1900, Harringay was originally split between the old boroughs of Municipal Borough of Hornsey and Municipal Borough of Tottenham with the boundary between the two running slightly to the west of Green Lanes (London) The unification of the two boroughs in 1965, as the London Borough of Haringey, brought all Harringay under the control of a single unit of local governance for the first time in more than a thousand years. On many of the roads in West Harringay, it is still possible to see the old Tottenham - Hornsey boundary where the paving stones give way to tarmaced pavement. The old parish / borough boundary markers are also still in place on some roads (see picture, right).

Etymology



The name ''Harringay'' has its origin in the Anglo-Saxons period and is derived from the name of a Saxon chieftain called Haering. ''Haering's Hege'' meant Haering's enclosure. The earliest written form of the name was recorded as ''Harenhg’'' in about 1195. Its development thereafter gave rise to the modern-day names of Harringay (the district of London), the London Borough of Haringey and Hornsey (another nearby district of London).

Entertainment



From 1750 until the second half of the 20th century, Harringay became a destination for Londoners seeking to relax. Hornsey Wood House, Finsbury Park, Harringay Stadium and Harringay Arena were all hugely popular leisure destinations in their day. The stadium and arena site is now occupied by Sainsbury's and the Arena Shopping Park.

Transport and communications history



There is little doubt that the history of transport communications through Harringay had a significant effect on its shape today. In Roman Britain, a great roadway to the north was established.See History of Harringay - Prehistory to 1750#Prehistory to Domesday. This roadway endured as a great communication passage to the north and brought much activity through the heart of the area. It also acted as the rough dividing line for land ownership, identifying Harringay’s position on the edge of manorial and subsequently borough boundaries.

In the mid-19th century, the arrival of the Great Northern Railway (Great Britain) (GNR) cleaved western Harringay from the rest of the Municipal Borough of Hornsey and set it fair for its subsequent union with the southwesternmost slice of the Municipal Borough of Tottenham. The subsequent construction of the Tottenham & Hampstead Junction Railway (THJR) almost defined Harringay's present-day southern boundary. Harringay (pronounced ) is a residential area in the London Borough of Haringey in North London, in the United Kingdom. It is centred on the section of Green Lanes (London) running between the New River (England), where it crosses Green Lanes by Finsbury Park, and Ducketts Common, near Turnpike Lane.
