London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

Features of Husseywell Open Space and The Knoll include a pond and a children's play area.

History

Both Husseywell Open Space and The Knoll were formerly part of the estate of Hayes Place, and probably established as parkland around 1755; by 1767 what is now Husseywell Open Space and pond were well established. The 1st edition OS Map of 1871 shows the area as farmland. When the Hayes Place Estate began to be developed for housing in the 1930s, local Cllr Percy Jones argued for some land to remain public open space, which eventually resulted in the creation of Husseywell Recreation Ground and The Knoll.
