Women's History Maps - Hornsey

Hornsey Women's History Map and Legend

Women's History Month sees a new web resource launched - The Haringey Women's History Map. Three beautifully illustrated maps highlight the lives and accomplishments of many women who have contributed, influenced, and helped shape the area we know today. 

From the archives of Bruce Castle Museum, the Haringey Women's History Maps bring together the stories and lives of around 250 women who lived or worked in Haringey.

Download the Hornsey Women's History Map and discover the courage and strength in Muswell Hill shown by Adelaide Tambo in the late 20th century and Spong sisters as suffragettes in the early 1900s. You can see the range of skill and creativity too in the novels of Buchi Emecheta in Crouch End.

The map can be enjoyed either from home or whilst out on a walk - whatever way, you can download a map and its corresponding legend and information. You can explore the area by following the number sequence or you can make up your own route - and be inspired by our Haringey Women's History.
