You’re now at Hornsey Church. The medieval church (which dates back to 1291) was demolished in 1831, apart from the tower. It was replaced by another which was then demolished in 1927. On the site of the present St Mary's Infant School, a third, larger church was completed in 1889, but soon suffered structural problems due to subsidence: this was demolished in 1969. The tower is all that remains of these structures. It was heightened in 1832, probably using some of the stone from the demolished mediaeval nave. The lower portion of the tower bears much evidence of its mediaeval origins.
