Demolition imminent 42 Phoenix Rd

Who remembers the old nursery at 42 Phoenix Rd? The building is to be demolished ‘within a month’.

Another loss for the area’s heritage.

Once the Margaret day nursery from the 1930s and then the Hopscotch club, it holds many memories for generations of children and nurses who once lived here.

It is to be replaced by student flats with no social housing nor green space planned, in after a tortuous planning application process that got the go ahead despite local feelings.

The Somers Town History club is interested in capturing any memories:
