Post by Pauline McQuade: Golders Lodge

Golders Lodge was built by Captain Alexander Wedderburn MacKenzie of the 67th Regiment of Foot. The ghost of Golders Lodge story probably came about when the body of his long dead sister Hannah was discovered in a bathroom of the rambling house. He had performed some sort of ceremony over the body but had neglected to bury her, this was then swiftly arranged. He was declared insane and died in Pembroke House, Hackney in November 1865.

Post by Lynne Hqapgood: Hutton Grove, N12

I have a question rather than a comment. When was 80 Hutton Grove built? My parents, Eddie and Margaret Hapgood, lived at 80 Hutton Grove from 1934 until sometime during the war,and I would love to know if they moved into a new-build house during the big suburban expansion in the 1930s. Does anyone out there know?! I visited very recently to see the road and the frontage of the house for the first time.

Leicester City 3 Arsenal 1: Premier League away woes continue for Arsene Wenger as Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez sinks 10-man Gunners
After Sunday's sublime farewell came the ridiculous reality of Arsenal in 2018 as their tour of Premier League terror continued in damning fashion as they slipped to a 3-1 defeat to Leicester that continued their pointless run of away games this year.

Dormers Wells

Dormers Wells or Dormer's Wells is a neighbourhood consisting of a grid of mostly semi-detached or terraced houses with gardens and small parks.

Until urban/suburban development in the mid 20th century this area formed a small, east part of the Precinct of Norwood a relatively rare half subdivision of the large parish of Hayes.

Southall and Norwood manors in much of the medieval period belonged to the Archbishop of Canterbury hence giving the Norwood quasi-chapelry — virtually all a mixed agricultural area which covered today's Dormer's Wells, Norwood Green and Southall — the higher, less alienable status of a precinct.

The 12th century founded, much-altered chapel is St Mary's Church, Norwood Green.

St John's Church, Southall was built and endowed in 1838; consecrated in three years and made a parish in 1850. Nine years later Norwood precinct was created a parish separate from that of Hayes.

Further Anglican churches followed: Holy Trinity, St George, Christ the Redeemer and Emmanuel none are named after this area.

In 1800 the precinct's overshot flour mill on the edge of the fields associated with "Dorman's Well Farm" belonged to the Hayes manorial estate, the main manor in the parish. At that date it stood, together with a house and other property, at Dorman's Well. The overshot mill, comprising a mill, house, millpond, and land, was owned by the Earl of Jersey in 1821 (Villiers family seated at nearby Osterley Park) and in the 1860s stood, as before, on Windmill Lane at Dorman's Well.

In the late 20th century migration into the area included part of London's Sikh community, who established a large community building and venue for public hire, the Baba Wadbhag Singh Trust building.
