Pinner Through Generations

Reflections by News reporter Eleanor Clavin and her family

Ever since I can remember, Pinner has existed as a key location in my life. As a child, I remember taking the bus into Pinner with my Aunt every week to walk around Pinner Memorial Park and every year I would insist that my mother took me to the annual Pinner fair to celebrate my birthday at the end of May.

For me, going to Pinner was like going to another world and in many ways, with its picturesque buildings and unique sense of community, it is. I remember specifically wanting to live above the Queen’s Head. Now, coincidentally, I work there and it is still my favourite building to date and practically my second home.

The history of Pinner has always fascinated me. How has Pinner maintained such a prominent sense of community? It continues to be an iconic cultural focal point in Greater London and never seems to have lost its charm. My mother, who grew up in Pinner during the 70s still reflects on her fondness of Pinner. I interviewed her to compare our experiences and find out what makes Pinner so special. pinner-memorial-lg-dec-20.jpg
