"The piggery: As a wartime measure (WWII), a Pig Farm was located on the site and visited by no lesser a person than the then Queen Elizabeth (the late Queen Mother) on one occasion. I believe that it fell into disuse following the cessation of hostilities, but was briefly re-introduced experimentally during the 1950s. I remember going to an 'Open Day' at the piggery, or it may even have been the actual re-opening event. Kitchen waste was collected from households in the area once a week to be turned into 'pig swill' or 'Tottenham Pudding'. I vaguely recall white enamel buckets with lids being provided for this purpose."
