A Tale Of 8 Tottenhams - 5. White Hart Lane

White Hart Lane is an area within Tottenham, but it's more famous as the home of Tottenham Hotspur with their football stadium dominating the whole area. 95% of visitors come for match days only, simply because there is not much more to the area, and there is maybe a possibly slightly sinister reason why this is.
