Welcome to

Saturday 8th July 2017 Winchmore Hill Green N21

This year’s N21 Festival is a fantastic community event on Winchmore Hill Green with a great host of things to do and enjoy. The Fancy Fair will be opened at 10am by The Deputy Mayor of Enfield and there will be entertainments for all ages going on in all corners of The Green through until 7pm.

www.N21Festival.net

Our centrepiece this time, will be a Big Wheel, which should give us a spectacular and unique view of old London Town in the distance. A unique chance to see Winchmore Hill from a different perspective! All day there will be • 60 eclectic stalls ranging from fashion, jewellery, and bread to The Residents Association, souvenirs and stationery • 3 Stages featuring different mixes of music, dance and showmanship. • Free children’s entertainment including a balloon modeller, puppet shows, and a huge range of activities including silly sports and goofy games by Smart Play and even a Petting Zoo • A Winchmore Hill people and places exhibition in The Waterhouse Hall and a history of Grovelands display. • Excellent Food Stalls including Thai, French, American and Greek • The excellent Winchmore Bar • No traffic! It should be a great day out for everyone – just have a look through the brochure at some of the things we are planning in more detail. Apologies to all those that are inconvenienced by the road closures, we appreciate your patience and understanding. Bring your friends, bring your family and have the best day out in Winchmore Hill.

See you there!

The Friends OF

GrOvelands Park

T

he Friends of Grovelands Park are a small C

but dedicated group wishing to preserve the M

beautiful landscape and amenities of the park Y

for the enjoyment of the community and future generations. We meet on a quarterly CM basis to plan events, discuss any concerns, and monitor the maintenance of the MY parks. Our volunteers often undertake work that would otherwise not be done. We CY have planted bulbs in the woodland area and built a ‘boardwalk’ in a particularly CMY boggy part of the wood for walkers as well as organising the hugely successful K award nominated Centenary Celebration Event. Recent initiatives supported or

instigated by the Friends of Grovelands Park include the installation of an open air gym and the substantive work to improve the running of the stream together with the Thames21 wetland water purification scheme. The park has been awarded the Green Flag 8 times in the last six years indicating it is of a standard that is a benchmark against which all other parks are measured.

We would be delighted to welcome new members who can help us keep Grovelands as the jewel in the crown of Enfield parks. For more information please drop us a line.

Memories of a byegone Winchmore Hill Some of you may know Yew Tree Close in Church Hill just opposite the Kings Head where there are 10 houses – I’ve lived in three of them (during WWII an anti-aircraft gun fired at the Luftwaffe from the circular centre where there are flowers now). In 1957 my mother bought a Wool Shop at 14 The Green (now Aroma Tea Shop) - my parents, sister Susan and I lived above the shop and I used to look out of the window and see bread being sold from Chalkleys Bakery on the corner of Hoppers Road. One of my earliest memories is of George Nix, who owned G. Nix Dairy on the Green, delivering milk from his yard by horse and cart with a cheery greeting for everyone! The shops on the Green were very different in those days – there were three butchers shops, two wet fish shops, two greengrocers, sweet shops and tobacconists, Paterson & Young’s grocery store with a Post Office inside occupied Samdan’s restaurant. To the cry of ‘any old iron’, Mr J Ladd, a rag-and-bone man, travelled the streets asking for donations of goods of any sort and watered his horse at the horse trough which is still on the Green today. Later the Green became filled with antique shops (Mistress Appleby still exists) and dealers would come to N21 from far and wide. If you visited Grovelands Park you could take a rowing boat out on the lake for half an hour for just six old pence! (2½p today). St Paul’s Primary School was situated where the car park of St Paul’s Church is now but the building was deteriorating so in 1958 we pupils moved to St Paul’s Institute in Station Road. where the sorting office is today. My parents, Norman and Zillah Werdmuller, were amongst the founding members of the Friends of St Paul’s School which was established to raise money for a new school to be built in Ringwood Way and to celebrate the formation of this committee a festival took place on the Green with bunting, floats and we children did country dancing around the maypole wearing Victorian dress. There was great excitement as the Mayor attended and a speech was given by the Headmaster, Mr Gayler. A good day was had by all! Pauline Shippey 10

So good we bought it twice Reflections on living in winchmore hill by Michael J. Mcdonagh

B

ack in 1973, we discovered Winchmore Hill by accident. I had come to London in 1965 from Manchester to study for a degree at what is now Middlesex University. Bruce May, the brother of folk singer Ralph McTell (Streets of London), was a friend from student days now living in a rented flat above the Buff Hair Salon on Wades Hill. He then found a house on Wilson Street (No.14) which he bought for the princely sum of £8000. One Saturday I came up on the bus from Camden Town, where we lived, to help him fill the skips and thought that the sign on the bus that referenced ‘Worlds End Lane’ had got it about right. Winchmore Hill seemed to me so far very away from the bustling action of Camden. A while later, having been ‘gazumped’ a few times (a new phenomena of the booming property market then) we followed up on a tip off from Bruce and bought No.28 down his street. With no bathroom, one cold tap in the kitchen, an outside toilet and just one electric light fitting it was like many of the houses in Wilson street then and had been unchanged more or less since the terrace was built in the 1880s. Unsurprisingly our Building Society turned us down saying the house was unfit for human habitation. We finally managed to find a mortgage from the GLC (Greater London Council) under a scheme to encourage people to refurbish old dilapidated houses. We paid what seemed an eye-watering £9750 for our first home. My father in Manchester was horrified at the price and told me he could buy us a whole ‘Coronation Street’ of similar style terrace houses for that price up north! After months of hard work, doing most of it ourselves, we finally moved up to the N21 suburban ‘sticks’ in late 1973, thus beginning our love affair with Winchmore Hill. Having put blood, sweat and tears into the house (I filled 13 skips on my own!) and proud of our quirky restoration, we grew to appreciate the house, the street and the area. We loved it so much we ended up buying it twice! Whilst living there we produced two children then we moved to a bigger house in Orpington Road in 1979. 27 years

later when thinking of down-sizing for retirement we acted on another lucky local tip off and quite by chance we bought our old house back. Returning to our unchanged home at No.28 Wilson Street, where we had been so happy, seemed like it was just meant to be. It was great for us to come back to this unique house and enjoy living again in this special street amongst the friendly community around Winchmore Hill Green. Recently No.20 sold for £660,000 a far cry from Bruce’s eight grand. By 1985 Ralph McTell, who had played folk club gigs for us at the Worlds End Rugby Club when we were students, had now been on Top of The Pops with a hit record and had become a major concert artiste selling out the Royal Albert Hall. So in 1985, I ‘borrowed’ the street back to shoot a TV commercial for one of his albums. It was a big deal night shoot involving clearing all the cars, laying camera tracks down the street and putting big film lights on the roof of the flats. Ironically my budget for this 30-second commercial was more than I had actually paid for our house ten years before! Back in the 1970’s many of the shops on the Green were antique shops, with Mistress Appleby still surviving from that time. Although we have now lost our post office and chemist, we are lucky to have a variety of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and a great deli, where we can all relax. We have never regretted moving to Winchmore Hill. With good local schools it is a wonderful location to bring up children. The proximity of Grovelands Park and the convenience of being able to get on a train and be in the West End in half an hour makes it an ideal place to live. Over the last 40 plus years we have so much enjoyed living here and being part of this friendly community in this special conservation area. It is a hidden gem in the morass of north London suburbia. A more recent highlight for me was being event director of the centenary celebrations in Grovelands Park, which brought the community together for a memorable weekend but took so much effort to organise. We should all be especially grateful for the work put in by Hugh and Ann Humphreys with their team for organising this festival on our Green and bringing us all together to share the wonderful place that is historic Winchmore Hill.

People and Places of Winchmore Hill – a unique exhibition for one day only You know them; Sir Cliff Richard, Myleen Klass, the Rednapps and Sid Owen famous residents of latter day Winchmore Hill but do you know any of the famous, or perhaps infamous residents of ye olde Winchmore Hill? The adulterer and owner of Grovelands Park who fled the country to avoid having to pay his estranged wife the sum of £800 a year until he restored her conjugal rights; who is this early resident (rogue) of Winchmore Hill? He was responsible for an engineering feat no less impressive in its day than the digging of the new Elizabeth Line is today; Sir Hugh Myddleton, the engineer responsible for the construction of the New River in the 1600s. For one day only, at the Waterhouse Hall, United Reformed Church, Compton Road, the N21 Festival will be hosting a photographic exhibition detailing the history of some of the area’s early residents and their homes. The exhibition, curated by long-time resident Brian Foyle, will include photographs of our adulterer and the engineer and other past residents as well as some of Winchmore Hill’s lost buildings.

My Crazy 12 Months! Hi Guys! I just thought I would tell you a little bit about my amazingly crazy Year! It all started when I was nominated and honoured with A Pride of Britain Child of Courage Award. This was given to me by Bake Off Winner Candice Brown, Jaimie Oliver and the Queen of Cakes Mary Berry! This was one of the greatest days of my life I met so many inspirational people including Stephen Hawkins. The next morning, I went to 10 Downing Street to meet the Prime Minister Teresa May who spoke to me about my life, my Charity and my you tube channel ‘Nikki Lilly’. My channel now has over 211,000 subscribers! One of the highlights of my year was being able to do a video with the beautiful Nicole Scherzinger in which we discussed everything from holidays to cooking. I have always had a love for baking so my aunty convinced me to enter Junior Bake off 2106. There were 4,000 applicants so I did not think I would get through but luckily I got into the televised heats and unbelievably after lots of difficult rounds against amazing bakers I heard the words The Winner of Junior Bake off 2016 is... Nikki! Could my year get any better? It did! I was chosen to appear in The Award Winning CBBC program ‘My Life’ and tell my story in the film ‘Born to Vlog’. Don’t get me wrong! There have been some lows. I also had to have 5 more operations and plenty of hospital appointments but despite this I believe that every day is a second chance to do something special. The Butterfly AVM Charity which I founded with my parents has raised over 400,000 for awareness, Support and life- saving research. What an amazing Year! And to finish it off I was invited to The Blue Peter studio to meet the team and bake. I also got to meet David Walliams and received A Blue Peter Badge. My dad was very jealous! Remember guys, Close your eyes make a wish, open them and make your dreams a reality. Love Nikki

5 Interior Design Trends for Summer in N21 We‘ve noticed that people are becoming more bold with their interiors locally this year, and why not? The area is blessed with interesting period properties and more and more people are deciding to extend and refurbish their homes rather than leave Winchmore Hill. With websites like Pinterest providing inspiration it’s a good opportunity to try the latest styles. Here I’ve chosen five trends to watch out for locally this summer: 1.Big leafy plants and bold tropical prints These are appearing everywhere- on wall coverings and fabrics. Every design house has their own take on this style - look out for North London designer Charlotte Frances’ bold leafy prints. Our area is full of greenery -bring some of that inside this summer! Check out our local Queens Head for their tropical wallpaper with a few cheeky monkeys thrown in. 2.Untreated walls Plaster, concrete, exposed brick – you’ve probably seen it in trendy shops and restaurants, but it’s now appearing more and more in our homes. And it’s easy to get the look with a large range of new textured wallpapers. Try this out on one wall, contrasting, say, with a new high-tech glossy kitchen. Other finishes are available including animal skins, tile and fabric.

3.Fantastic Neons Lettering, shapes, signs:- great to create a playful and artistic accessory as a bright ambient alternative to a painting. Maybe have your own favourite slogan captured on the wall in lights. These look even better against the untreated wall trend mentioned above. 4.Deep Moody Colours Those dark paint colours aren’t going away. And all grey is so last year! Deep dark blues for your bedroom or lounge create a luxurious, cosy environment for relaxing. Mix it up with soft blush and musky pinks in luxurious soft textiles as a contrast. In N21 we’re lucky to have good room sizes and this is a look that suits them well. 5.Geometric Patterns The retro look is back once again and midcentury furniture and geometric prints look good anywhere, but particularly suit our local 20’s and 30‘s style houses. Danish and Scandinavian style designs in greens, yellows and oranges can work well with the dark wall trend above. Look out for more of these prints in the summer collections. Daniela Falcone is the head interior designer and owner of il falcone in Winchmore Hill.

Windmills and Galleons in N21 Much of the housing stock in N21 was built between the wars. These interwar houses were ground-breaking! They abandoned 200 years of formal architectural practice by replacing sash windows with casement windows, often with leaded glass and with fanlights above, incorporating stained glass designs. These casements formed large multipaned bays to maximise the light entering the rooms. It is the 1930s glass designs that I find the most interesting, especially when they veer away from traditional Victorian and Art Nouveau designs. There were several factors that influenced the designs of 1930s glass. This was the period when the geometric style of Art Deco became very popular causing window glass design to become simpler and more angular. One of the most popular motifs is a set of sun’s rays in contrasting coloured glass spreading outwards from a rising sun. The extension of the London Underground throughout the 1930s enabled more and more Londoners to experience the countryside. London Transport posters of the 30s display the joys of spending time in the countryside and advertise rural idylls such as Golders Green for the ideal commute. The introduction of Hire Purchase meant people could put down a small deposit and move into a brand-new home in tree lined

countrified streets. This passion for the outdoor life is reflected in lots of the stained-glass designs depicting pastoral scenes, birds, streams, windmills etc. Further continuing the countrified theme, many of these 1930s houses had a mock Tudor cottage design incorporating features such as dark wood half timbering of bays and gables, overhanging upper floor, diamond latticed leading and windows with galleons often tossing on stormy seas. In many parts of London, and indeed countrywide, these 1930s houses have been defaced with replacement windows and doors not in keeping with the original design. It is really pleasing to see that many owners of 1930s houses in N21 have taken great care to retain these unique features or replace them sensitively. Whilst many of the ‘modernist’ houses have already become listed buildings, the more usual 1930s houses which also have many unique design features have failed to get the recognition they deserve. Perhaps someday in the future these lovely buildings will come to be better appreciated. Another reason to continue to preserve their original beauty. Until then perhaps we should set up a photographic archive in the Local History section on n21.net. Fran Delamare All photos taken in N21. 38

Bush Hill Park Golf Club Local History Bush Hill Park Golf Club occupies a central location between Winchmore Hill and Enfield Town, but despite this many of our closest neighbours know very little about the Club and its history. The golf club was formed in 1895 and the clubhouse and estate it occupies, is of considerable historic interest. In 1688, William III granted the estate to the Earl of Rutland and 50 years later it was bought by Samuel Clayton. At the time, the estate consisted of about 230 acres and a house, built in the early 17th Century. In 1820 the house was sold to the Ford family, who added about two-thirds of the present mansion house which still stands today. The clubhouse with old ornamental lake

The clubhouse was bought by Bush Hill Park Golf Club in 1922 and, along with the 100 acres of golf course land, remains under the shared ownership of the Club members.

The clubhouse as it stands today

During the Second World War the clubhouse was used as the headquarters for the 52nd/53rd Anti-Aircraft Brigade. Anti-glider ditches were dug on some of the fairways and the Home Guard patrolled the course in case any paratroopers tried to land. After 1945 the Club slowly returned to normal, the Army moved out of the house and the whole course was re-opened in March 1948. Today the house is used by members and visitors, providing a stunning venue for Weddings and other special events. Contact us to find out more.

ELIZABETH SAWYER. THE WITCH OF WINCHMORE HILL Elizabeth Sawyer was God fearing and when the chaplain of Newgate, Henry Goodcole, asked her to repent her sins, she readily agreed to all his leading and prurient questions confessing to an array of diabolic behaviour .

Elizabeth Cronwell of Winchmore Hill married a local woodcutter Edward Sawyer when she was nineteen. Today the family would be classed as dysfunctional. Several of her eleven recorded children had been brought before the courts but somehow had avoided punishment.

Apparently the Devil had caught her blaspheming and subsequently visited her three times a week in the shape of a dog. The dog sucked blood from her mole in return for giving her satanic powers.

Elizabeth supplemented the family income by making brooms. She had lost one eye and childbearing had made her 49 year old body appear like an 80 year old. The villagers feared her and dared each other to pluck thatch from her roof and set fire to it. If Mother Sawyer emerged it proved she was a witch.

Goodcole published his interview with Sawyer within four days of her execution on 19th April 1616 ostensibly to stop malicious rumours from spreading. The pamphlet he produced probably says more about Goodcole’s salacious mind rather than about a poor women whose only crime was failing to control a poisonous tongue.

Her downfall started when she reproached a neighbour for clouting her pig. “That will be a dear blow unto you” Elizabeth threatened. When the neighbour, Agnes Ratcliffe, died four days later her dying words accused Sawyer of being the cause of her demise.

The pamphlet however prompted Jacobean authors to immortalise Elizabeth Sawyer in a play that almost certainly was performed at court. Thomas Dekker’s “The Witch of Edmonton” portrays her as a victim and while not sticking to the whole truth of the story left the Jacobean audience in full sympathy with the broom manufacturer of Winchmore Hill.

Sawyer was charged with using witchcraft to murder Ratcliffe and was sent to Newgate awaiting trial. Often similar cases would be thrown out by judges but on this occasion a witness accused Sawyer of having the mark of the devil on her body. A strip-search revealed a mole near her groin. The credulous jury found her guilty and she was sentenced to hang at Tyburn.
