Romeo is a Geography A Level student who is currently doing fieldwork on the changes to the cultural landscape in Palmers Green and how these have been perceived by the local residents. The type of changes he's looking at is to shops, restaurants and places of worship.

The survey is very short and specific and will only take a couple of minutes to fill in.

Romeo could do with updating his geography though - a number of the stores mentioned are actually closed. Slightly hard to understand what some of the questions are driving at, too.

David thank you for completing the survey, I passed your comments onto my son. His response was:
"I am confident that all the shops, restaurants and places of worship are current as I checked them physically and online. The previous businesses are in most cases now closed. Two examples are slightly different: Ingham Flowers had two premises side by side and relinquished just one to the Polski Sklep; and a florist retained the second premises and is there today under a different guise (Pomegranate). The second is the restaurant Aksular which extended its premises by taking over the hairdressers, Headstart.
Palmers Green is known for its diverse ethnicity, and my fieldwork is looking into the changing migration patterns as reflected in the cultural landscape of shops, restaurants and places of worship, and how the changes are perceived by the residents. Once again, thank you for your participation"

Hi Sheila, it might be a couple of examples where google maps has it wrong then (ref closures listed). Alderman's Hill florist was one example, no point referring to a business (Igham Flowers) that doesn't exist, when discussing a retail parade. It will be seen and known as Pomegranate Flowers (which is fabulous, by the way, got a great Xmas tree from there!).

Very interesting thesis though, wish him best of luck with it.
