The Friends of Finsbury Park have asked author Hugh Hayes to revise his book A Park for Finsbury to celebrate the 150th anniversary this August of the founding of Finsbury Park.
The book was originally published 20 years ago and the new version will bring the story of the park up to date, and include more about Hornsey Wood House that was demolished to make way for the park. The additional 16 pages planned will also include more about the reservoir under the park and the 6 million pound investment in the park in the 00s.
Please help the friends celebrate the anniversary by pre-ordering a copy or making a donation, this will help cover print and editing costs. Any profits from the sale of the book will go to the Friends of Finsbury Park which is a registered charity.
