Wheel of Life

Rumours of some forty million pounds of council money held in the collapsed Icelandic bank have got residents nervous that the nice new pavements being laid on Tottenham High Road might stop dead in their tracks along with exciting development plans for the whole area.

Will the milk be delivered in the morning?

Tottenham Cinema

Opportunity for nice new cinema on the High Road

Once upon a time Tottenham was spoilt for choice...

Bruce Grove Cinema opened in 1921 and closed in 1963.

Tottenham Palace Theatre of Varieties opened 1912, once a cinema, then a Bingo Hall, now a church.

When will Tottenham shoppers get a chance to spend their money on the High Road?

When Spurs build their new stadium?

But when will that be?

Closed for Business?

Take a stroll down Tottenham High Road towards the hallowed ground at White Hart Lane and you'll find yourself walking into a ghost town.

Charming Edwardian buildings left derelict.

Burnt out flats with their windows smashed in.

No shops open for business.

Everything boarded up.

Word on the street has it that all those lovely buildings around the Stadium have been boarded up because the Club is mulling over an exciting and complex decision to build a new Emirates Style Stadium there.

Nail biting stuff because for visitors to the area it looks like that whole stretch of the High Road has been left abandoned when in fact big things are planned.
