The tower is the oldest building in Hornsey and is maintained by the Friends of Hornsey Church Tower (FoHCT). It is owned by the church and is part of the Diocese of London.
The FoHCT were established in 1989 as a registered charity, with the aim of giving the tower a secure future. Members come not only from Hornsey but also from other parts of Haringey and further afield, demonstrating the widespread interest in preserving a monument, which has for centuries been a significant feature of the local landscape.
The Friends encourage the active use of the building and for it to have a continuing useful and varied role, whilst recognising that repair and maintenance of the fabric has to be combined with a sympathetic understanding of the historical features of this grade II* listed building.
The Friends also aim to preserve the rural character of the churchyard, to enhance the garden of remembrance, and encourage the use of the area for quiet recreation by the local community.
You can find out a lot about the FoHCT, the history, gardens and fascinating stories about the graves on their website: www.hornseychurchtower.com
