Bounds Green – A History and Walk is a book is about a less well-known, but nevertheless interesting, corner of Haringey. Initially the area was a rural hamlet which later became a cosmopolitan residential district of Wood Green.
Once farmland, but later the home of wealthy 19th-century residents, it would become the location of brickworks, glassworks, a university, an industrial estate and an Olympic-size swimming pool.
