Southgate Green (also known as Southgate Village Green)9453

Greater London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

Around the Green are a number of fine C18th and C19th houses, which include the old village inn. The Green is now a series of green spaces divided by roads, within one of which are the replacement of the old village stocks, erected here in 1953 after the originals were lost in WWII.

History

Southgate Green marks the old village green, which at one time featured fine elm trees; the hamlet was so-called due to its position as the main southern entrance into Enfield Chase. Once heavily wooded until around the C16th, Southgate remained a small rural community until the C20th when the coming of the railway encouraged housing development.
