* Data on the volume of motor vehicle movements in the area

 

* Data on the speed of motor vehicles in the area

 

* Impacts on the primary roads surrounding the area

 

* Bus journey time considerations through discussion with Transport for London

 

* Outcomes of ongoing dialogue with the emergency services.

 "a bit more complicated than blocking off a few roads"

 "Is the lack of consultation part of the problem?"

asks Bambos Charalambous in Parliament?"

  

"Has not that been caused by the Government's insistence that the schemes be implemented straightaway within an eight-week period, not allowing any consultation with communities or very limited consultation at best?"

Vicars Moor Lane terrace, a case study in conservation

on Monday, 18 January 2016. Posted in N21 Community

 

If you have walked down Vicars Moor Lane in recent weeks, you may have noticed that the lovely Victorian terrace 70 - 76 Vicars Moor Lane, has acquired intricate iron railings.. 

 

18.1b3

 

 

The terrace was originally built in 1874, in 'Italianate' style, shortly after the coming of the railway and the opening of Winchmore Hill Station. This is a photograph taken circa 1900 and shows that this is how the terrace originally looked.


18.1b4

 

 

It was believed that the terrace was built by a father of four children, to accommodate his family. Three of his children were married and were given the larger double fronted houses, with the smaller one occupied by the one that remained single. Whilst the terrace is Grade 2 listed and within the Vicars Moor Conservation area, the cast iron railings were removed during the war, as many were throughout the country, as part of the war effort to stock-pile this material.

 

There was an attempt to restore the railings in the 1980s but not all the homeowners were prepared to share the cost, but these designs have finally been utilised. 

 

 

18.1b5

 

 

Local architect Simon Lanyon-Hogg was recently commissioned to restore no 72, with a brief to "update the service to C21st standards but retain the historic character and restore where we could".  Simon and the current owner were able to persuade the other property owners to reinstate the railings. To quote Simon "The photo provided good evidence for the character of the railings which fortunately Enfield Council agreed with. That all the owners shared a common ambition to restore the railings was quite remarkable".


"The next stage was to find the right contractor. After the tender process Scott Thomasson of A.F.T Fabrication based in the Isle of Wight. PO33 1BU was appointed along with an IOW stonemason, Duncan Bird, to replace copping stone with Portland Stone. So, all good materials and craftsmanship".


18.1b7a



Whilst this restoration would have incurred costs for all the home owners, I am sure most peoople would agree that unifying the terrace once more have been worthwhile, especially in the heart of this conservation area.

If you walk down Vicars Moor Lane have you noticed the changes to 70 -76?

    That is admirable - and it looks just lovely. In an age when respect for history seems to have gone out of the window and so often people tear the very guts out of these old houses to modernise them, it is lovely to hear of a sensitive restoration. Well done to the owners.
