The heatwave seems to be consigned to history now but this weekend is a good opportunity for anyone interested in local history to take a look at our marvellous treasure-house of experts and stories – The Hornsey Historical Society, who are opening their doors to the public on Saturday and Sunday. The programme is as follows – for more details see: http://hornseyhistorical.org.uk/w/index.php/courses


Prickett and Ellis have a strong and fruitful relationship with HHS who have helped us trace parts of our 250 year history working in this special piece of North London. We thank them for their continued support and interest.
