Our much acclaimed first documentary written and directed by Andy Attenburrow. The film tells the story of Hornsey, Highgate, Muswell Hill and Crouch End through the years 1850 to 1939.
Hornsey’s history as a parish and administrative area goes back to at least the 13th century. For most of that time, Hornsey was a rural backwater in the county of Middlesex but, with the coming of the railways in the 1850s, developers realised the opportunity to create a suburb.
