Few little facts about Crouch-End
Crouch End is an area in North London in the London Borough of Haringey. Crouch End remained rural until around 1880 probably because of the lack of adequate sewerage. Large parts remained in private ownership, inhibiting development. But the railways was to change the areas significantly. It expanded greatly in the late Victorian period and most of its present day streets were built up in the late 19th century.
Among its more prominent buildings is the strikingly modernistic Hornsey Town Hall, built by the Municipal Borough of Hornsey as their seat of Government in 1933 - 1935. The interior and exterior has been used several times as a location by the BBC soap Eastenders.
The movie "Shaun of the Dead" was shot in Crouch End with a frictional Crouch End underground station. An episode of the TV series Poirot was filmed at the town hall in the early 1990s.
