Our new publication will be out in September!
Bridget Cherry’s long anticipated book, Ivy-Mantled Tower A History of the Church and Churchyard of St Mary Hornsey, Middlesex is now with the printer.
The book will be launched on Wednesday, 16th September, 6.00pm - 7.30pm, at St Mary with St George Church, Cranley Gardens, N10 (on the corner with Park Road N8). Ivy-Mantled Tower is a hard-back book with 136 pages and 202 illustrations, retailing at £19.50. It tells the compelling story of a succession of buildings from the medieval church with its bell tower (which still stands) to an 1833 church, followed by a late Victorian one which was demolished in 1969. But all has not been lost! The ancient tower has been rescued from dereliction and the neglected churchyard transformed thanks to the support of the Rectors of Hornsey and the diligent work of volunteers, many the Friends of Hornsey Church Tower.
The launch will be a good opportunity to come and buy the book – an excellent addition to your own bookshelf and an ideal birthday and Christmas present for friends and relatives.
