The Tottenham Trades Hall on Bruce Grove has clearly seen better days. It's a listed building, Georgian, and almost four years ago, the local press was reporting than a plan for renovation and restoration had been approved. It doesn't seem to have got very far.
The building, now largely obscured by boarding, hosts one of the more remarkable of London's blue plaques. It commemorates Luke Howard, 'namer of clouds'. And no, this isn't a try on - he really did exist, and he really did name clouds..
Luke Howard died in this building at the age of 91 in 1864 - and it seems that his system of cloud classification was his lasting legacy.
