Totteridge Green today consists of grassland, areas of woodland with a variety of trees. In the centre is a mature oak. Laurel Farm Pond remains in the south.
In the C13th Totteridge was a hamlet. From the C17th and C18th the area gradually attracted wealthy people who built houses here. The central oak was possibly planted in the C18th by Sir Peter Meyer, a Dutch merchant who lived in the area, who obtained permission from the Lord of the Manor to plant trees and to make ponds.
