The HHS features in this week’s Ham and High in an article about the tombstone of Harriet Long and Jacob Walker in the St Mary’s Churchyard in Hornsey.

Using HHS member Roy Hidson’s piece – The Lady and the Slave – a Hornsey Mystery – and having interviewed Publications Manager Janet Owen, the Ham and High covers the story of Harriet Long, and Jacob Walker’s change in status from slave in the United States to servant in England.
