Site: North South route in Haringey (1 memorial)

N17, Watermead Way

We missed all the publicity there must have been when this was unveiled in this car park, but, John Prescott - we are impressed. Alan Stanton was similarly struck by the importance of this piece of street furniture. There we learn that it used to be in the station forecourt. The plaque is rather lost in this new location - hope they are more careful with it in the next move, or it might be lost altogether, which would be a real shame.
