Newington’s Radicals NEW WALK
19 November 11.30 am £10
This walk introduces you to radicals who made Newington Green and Canonbury their home. After 1660, dissenting ministers were forced to live five miles from their former parishes, so many congregated around the Unitarian church on the Green. Mary Wollstonecraft’s connections with the area are well known, but did you know that Lenin once attended a conference in Southgate Road, and that conscientious objectors were attacked there during the First World War? Dalston Synagogue in Poet’s Road was home to a thriving Jewish community, and George Orwell wrote his masterpiece 1984 in Canonbury.
