The Green in My Valley

The Green in My Valley film was unearthed recently by its producer Norman Saville, once the Honorary Solicitor for the Mill Hill Preservation Society and still an active member of the Committee. The film has great views of the Totteridge Valley and features members of the Society, including the then Chairman, John Turtle.

John took this photo of a much-loved view across the Totteridge Valley.

The film was made in 1991, in an era when golf course applications were threatening to overwhelm the Valley.  The fact that all the applications were defeated, and the Totteridge Valley remains intact to this day, must be counted as one of the great successes for the Society. But the film is a reminder of the threats that come and go.
