The Octavia Hill Garden

In 2018 the Society unveiled an Information Panel to commemorate Octavia Hill, the social reformer. The Panel is located at the Green Man Community Centre in Strawberry Vale, East Finchley, N2 9AB. The panel is located here.

The Society supported the installation of the panel because of Octavia’s connection with Finchley. As a child, Octavia lived with her family in nearby Brownswell Cottages and played in the stream near where the Community Centre now stands. More informatioin about Octavia Hill, the garden, and the information panel can be found in the September-October issue of the Newsletter.
