Cooks Ferry Inn, Angel Road, Upper Edmonton N18

Edmonton index

At Edmonton Marsh in 1874. The former Cook's Ferry Inn in Edmonton (though in reality it was on the Chingford side of the river, so geographically and actually it was in Chingford, Essex, not Edmonton, Middlesex! This was a major hostelry on one of the very few major crossings of the river Lea. In more recent times - 1960's - 70's hosted many world famous rock music acts before they were famous. It was demolished to make way for the enlarged North Circular Road, and now this hugely important building is just going to disappear from public knowledge and be totally forgotten as if it never existed. If you have any history of this pub, I would be very grateful. ***
