Stroll down the High rd

Reply

thought i’d ave a stroll down the High rd from Seven Sisters before the game against Everton the other week.
Packed tube got stuck next to two Cockney Everton rambling on about how shite they are , then off the tube and up the infamous escalators where a Spurs fan died in 81 v Man utd when it all went off down there and the somebody pressed the emergency stop button and there was a crush at the bottom.
out the station and 3 touts were doin the business at the top of the stairs. a stroll up past the town hall scene of great days after the 81 cup win when 300,000 were out on the High rd to bring the fa cup back home , then past the site of the old bull pub where many firms came a cropper . On to the corner of West green rd where we used to get off the no 41 bus and make the mistake of entering the Swan boozer full of rastas and big black blokes drinking Red stripe with the air full of spliffs.Shut down now shame as it was quite a landmark.
From a younger age this is where you got the first glimpse of the old floodlights illuminating the sky line from a mile down the rd and the buzz of the crowd making their way to the ground hit you. Few hundred yards on the left and the Tottenham Ritzy has turned into a gospel singing church, Eltons long gone and the Old bill station on the right still flying the Union Jack high and proud. past the boarded up buildings torched in the riots, every second shop seemed to be a barbers of hairdressers and i must ave walked past at least 20 chicken shops .
past the ship pub and then past Bruce grove station i noticed the Red lion pub on the corner of Lansdowne rd is now a curtain and blinds shop ffs, not far now to the ground , walk past a few vendors selling old programmes , signed prints and t shirts and into the bell n hare for a quick one as the corner pin has gorn. The old Antwerp straight up from the park lane towards bruce castle park has burnt down and is still boarded up, one of my favourite watering holes back in the late 80s early 90s.Back on the high rd Rudolphs opposite and past the old vicarage where the vicar was doin his nut back in 82 when Leeds came down for a 4th rd cup tie with a massive firm and it was two massive mobs having it outside the ground, we got herded into the vicarage gdns and he’s come out telling us we’re all going to hell, we shouted back no were on our way to wembley . Few yards on and past the old Whitehall tavern no longer there , where the coaches used to pick us up, and a butchers up the street to the old British queen which has only just shut down. Onwards to the old Railway next to WHL station is another boozer to shut its doors so onto the Irish club but its too packed with 7 coachloads of pissed up scousers to get any joy in there so around the the Old coolbury club next to the Bricklayers which is probably one of the easiest places to get to the bar hence why a lot of the brickies crowd are drinking in there before the game. A quick one up the Coaches and onto the game. The lane was rocking the atmosphere blinding and post match in the Bell n Hare the old Tottenham cup songs where booming out. steaming but happy i strolled back up the High rd into the night and back to Seven sisters, a walk that haunted many away fans back in the good old days. what a blinding trip down memory lane
oh its a long way to seven sisters

The closing of the British Queen was a sad one for me. Took the kids there last year. I could see they were impressed. Always liked the Coolbery too.

Probably said this before.But when I was last back 16 months ago I was supposed to be meeting someone up the wrong end of the high rd past the one way system.I was used in the past 10 years of staying in pubs around or North of the ground.
I felt uncomfortable around Bruce Grove and felt as though I didn’t belong.
Another Km up the road I decided I was turning around and heading back,a bus pulled up and I jumped on tried to pay ,but was chucked off as they dont take cash anymore only tickets!!!! I then decided to grab an Evening Standard,held my money out only 2 be told it was free now!!i WAS WELL OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE.
I was so glad when I made it back to the Bell and Hare.I worked in Tottenham when the original riot was on,no problems,I worked 150 metres from Brixton station when the riot was on there.No problems.Eltons,Ritzy,Sams and Coolbury and the pubs used to be a regular thing.Even played against Broadwater Farm Community centre away in a cup match and although having a hundred of there freinds around the pitch edge No problems.
I have come to the conclusion that I’m older ,live in Paradise and that the people have changed that pose any threat.(read into that what you want)
Not for me anymore,love it around the ground but after a certain time (11pm)if your a visitor.Get Out.
Nothing Glorious anymore about Tottenham High Rd.

Sad to here about that Jock. Perhaps explains why Levy has taken the Hotel out of WHL upgrade and replace with flats.

Nice stories guys.
I would have loved to have a pint in the old boozers that have been shut down now, but you can’t deny how great it is to be anywhere near the Lane, present day, on match day.
I’ve been living in London for almost 2 years now and I can honestly say that coming here was the best decision I’ve made in my life.

Coming from Brisbane, and growing up with rugby league, I have a different idea of what match day and a football stadium experience is like. Back home, I’m used to getting on the piss in Caxton Street with all my mates and going to Lang Park (Suncorp Stadium) to watch either the Broncos or Brisbane Roar play. Caxton Street has an amazing atmoshpere with loads of good boozers and some great food, and before I arrived in London, this was my only experience of what match day is. I soon found out that Tottenham High Road/White Hart Lane and Caxton Street/Lang Park are very different.

I’d only been in London for a week, and I was already finding it hard to deal with the shithouse weather, when I made my first trip up to the Lane for what was the last match of the season. Spurs v Bolton.
As you walk towards the Lane from Seven Sisters things are, to say the least, VERY different to back home. I felt like I’d arrived in little Jamaica. Millions of chicken shops, hairdressers picturing young black women in the posters, and the smell of weed in the air. After about a 20 minute walk along this filthy old road you can see the Bell and Hare in the distance, followed by the Spurs Shop and White Hart Lane. Burger stalls, merch stalls and old bill riding massive horses everywhere. My first experience of the Bricklayers Arms was amazing. Recommend it to anyone.

Tottenham may not be as clean-cut as Brisbane and White Hart Lane is certainly different from Lang Park. But it’s just another great experience as being a Spurs fan. You’ll never forget it. Amazing place. If you haven’t been yet, make sure you do………….and don’t get more than a score out of the dodgy cash point near the Ezgi turkish restaurant after 11pm.

Great posts Gudge, jock and bris Yid. I don’t have time now but will add my favorite memories one day. My then 12 year old blonde haired, sun tanned Aussie son felt very uncomfortable when I took him on the exact same walk from SS station in 2010. “where are all the white people Dad” he asked me, bless him. I called into the house in Gorleston Road that I grew up in and the door was answered by a lovely old West Indian lady. After telling her I used to live in her house all those years ago she let us in and we had the most fantastic afternoon. She invited us to stay for dinner and cooked all the traditional Jamaican foods for us, her son and 2 grandchildren dropped in and made us feel so welcome. My boy keeps in touch as a pen pal. It opened his eyes to another culture and also where I grew up.

I took my Dad to a game between 1978-80. Was back in the UK 1975-80.
Living in and Running a Seaside Hotel in St Leonards -on- Sea next to Hastings.
Dad was retired and living on the Isle of Wight. Came to stay with us at the Hotel.
Like you North we did the Seven Sisters walk to the ground, looking at all the points of interest on the way, it wasn’t till we reached Bruce Grove. Like you son said.
I can remember saying to him we havn’t seen one white person. When I think of it now :doh:
Our old house in Eastbourne road off St Anns Road was replaced with flats.
Although where I lived as a baby near your place North, at 7 Lydford Road near the Cissbury Library is still there, as it looks on Street View bit of dump. It’s the one with a white wall for those having a look.
I don’t think my Dad emptied the coal cellar either when we moved.
There used to be a Football Club on this site 😆 😆

Making my first ever trip to England (or overseas for that matter) in August and I’ll definitely get to a game (hoping that I can get tickets okay).

Anyone recommend some good pubs for me to check out around there, particularly on match day?

Can’t wait to get there!

spose your walk was a little further darn the high rd on the way back? past seven sisters and towards Stamford Hill kibbutz where im sure you would ave got on the nth London line train from South Tottenham to Richmond via West Hampstead. i use to use the line occasionally getting on at Gospel Oak, remember a nice little firm of the crescent and Kentish town getting on before the early kick off when in 84 when chelsea came back up after years in the wilderness thinking that Chelsea’s lads would be using the line , no show though .
Lovely tales Bris yid and Norf syd, shame i did’nt get to meet you at the cup game Bris yid but i was fu*king hammered after the game in the Bell n Hare following up a monster friday night

crying shame all the pubs gorn:

the grove tavern with its famous star wars bar
3 compasses
chequers
the bank/cockerel
railway tavern
the park
the milford
british queen
TLC/Pleasure rooms
prince of wales
red lion
the mitre (if you were brave enough to go for a piss in the pool bar :lol:)
the plough
the bull
what was the big pub set back from High Cross opposite the swan?

when i was back home november last year, I went down on 11/11 to tend me grandads grave in WHL cemetery, took my 5yr old, parked in barkham rd out the front of me nans old drum, did the walk through the graveyard, laid a poppy etc and walked up to the gate by the antwerp, popped in for a light ale, little did I know 2 days later it would be on fire and another Tottenham pub gone, Tesco was gutted when I told him.

Even the bill nick was better as the Northumberland arms when it was a proper old pub, they just dont get the trade round there no more except on match days

and of course warmington house, a pack of salt n vinegar sitting outside on the wall and a warm bottle of coke, lovely

I went to the Bill Nick before the last game of last season. That place is huge.

I was just going to ask is this the old Northumbarland Arms, used to meet some of the Richmond Spurs boys outside the Horse and Groom in Hanworth, go for a large breakfast in Hounslow and be outside the Northumberland around 1030 used to play 50p up against the wall until 1100hrs when it was time to “Get on It”

Have really enjoyed this thread.

Remember buying a couple of tout tickets outside Elton’s for the League Cup semi replay against the Arse in 1987 – when we gave away 2 goals in the last minute to miss out on the final (wish I hadn’t bothered !)

Going back in April for first time since ’06 and having to go corporate with the prawn sandwich brigade to the Norwich game as only way to guaratee a ticket. Mind you it will probably be more comfortable than when I used to freeze my bollocks off on the shelf in the early 80’s !

Where did people used to eat before a game ? Used to drive up from Kent with my 2 boys and park up in the Sainsbury’s at the top of the High Road and go in a great chip shop called the Dolphin that did the best battered sausage in the Northern Hemisphere ! Now every time I pass a Bunnings on a Saturday morning, the smell of the hotdogs takes me back to doing that walk.

Actually sat indoors watching the City game drinking a cup of Bovril the other week to try and recreate that ambience !! All it needed was someone shouting “wear yer club colours” and “tickets ! get yer tickets” to complete the effect !!

the bull was almost opposite the swan

The Swan was one of the oldest boozers on the manor , Izaak Walton used it on many occasions after a days Fishing on the nearby Lea
Mackayfan do you remember the Roebuck on the cnr of Roebuck lane?
what was the coach n horses originally called?

The Bell brewery was also on the high rd which was taken over by Whitbreads

Hoddleking i used to ave a dodgy boiled burger or hotdog from the various vendors with there small mobile stalls which ave sadly long gone or a gillards sausage roll and chips from the chippy near the cnr of WHL and the high rd. For away games if we were on the coach we’d ave a breakfast next door to Rudolphs before we crossed the road to the Whitehall

My memories of all the old pub names not to clever these days. The Bull was one we went to almost opposite Tottenham Town Hall, along with British Queen. Also one in High street directly alongside Police Station.
Which was across from the Royal Dance Hall which was just down from the Enterprise Boxing Club. Used to work in Kilburn at one time and mate and I would call in at the Spaniards Inn at Hamstead. Before seeing my girlfried at Muswell Hill. The Cooks Ferry Inn at Edmonton was a top venue where we all used to go, all top acts there 10 bob to get in. Got married and lived in Barnet where I was a regular at the Black Bull. Whetstone.
Don’t know if I would fancy the Tottenham pubs these days. Even in my days got smacked in the mouth laid out flat. at the one next to the Police Station, plus had a good mate tell me he had saved my life in British Queen. Told North that story at the National, after a few drinks was taking the piss out of two blokes who turned out to be The Richardson brothers who were Tottenham’s answer to the Kray twins. :think: :naughty:

Don’t remember that one, did see him play though plus went to his testimonial in late 50s.
I lived in 2 houses in Barnet both streets ran off Grasvenor Ave where Barnet’s ground was.
Old pub on the corner called Red Lion another Red Lion in Barnet high road. The Queens Arms was the last pub I’ve visited in Barnet used to be next to Cinema, opposite Station road. Went there to catch up with family and friends on UK visit in 1991. Night before I went to Tottenham with my cousin to see us draw 3-3 with Everton. This was after the Arsenal semi we were saving ourselves for the final. Another pub I visited with old Football mates was The Rising Sun think it was Edmonton way.

This has turned out a stroll down memory lane, not the High Road :sadness: 😆

i worked up Barnet for a couple of years knocking out sports gear to all the shops in the south east and a run up to the midlands once a fortnight. Orange tree on Totteridge lane was a lovely boozer , bit of a drive but always worth it for the crumpet, most of my lot from Kentish town ave moved up to New Barnet and use that dodgy boozer the Railway.
used to use the Red lion near Barnets ground before we went to underhill when Spurs were’nt playing on saturdays in the late 80s and early 90s.

We should go back to watching school boys playing football.
Games played on the Tottenham Marshes.
Mark out and prepare their own pitch as pre game entertainment.
Defend against other teams who might try to take over the pitch.
Local pubs used as dressing rooms.
Games played between themselves.
