In fact it is steeped in history and many of the area’s period properties reflect this history. On Monday I was called out to value a gorgeous Grade II listed cottage in a beautiful little spot called ‘Prospect Place’ near All Hallows Church (Tottenham is full of these little gems)… the sun was shining and as driving back to the office I caught sight of ‘Bruce Castle’ sitting proudly at the entrance to Bruce Castle Park, I was so taken by its grandeur and beauty I just had to pull over and take a few shots with our professional Nikon camera.
