The London Borough of Enfield is the most northerly London borough and forms part of Outer London. Enfield used to be a small market town on the edge of the forest about a day’s travel north of London. As London has grown, Enfield has become a residential suburb, with fast transport links into central London and forms the post town of Enfield which comprises EN1, EN2, N3, N9, N13, N14, N18 and N21.
The current borough was formed in 1965 from the former area of the Municipal Borough of Southgate, the Municipal Borough of Enfield and the Municipal Borough of Edmonton. The Coats of Arms of these three boroughs were also merged. The creature on the shield of the Enfield coat of arms is known as an “Enfield” or colloquially as the Enfield beast. It is used extensively as a logo representing Enfield, particularly by the borough council. Allen and Young Removals carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Enfield area.
In Roman times, Enfield was connected to Londinium by Ermine Street, the great Roman road which stretched all the way up to York. Artifacts found in the early 1900s reveal that there were Roman settlements in the areas that are now located in Edmonton and Bush Hill Park.
In 790 King Offa was recorded as giving the lands of Edmonton to the Abbey of St Albans. The area became strategically important as East Anglia had been taken over by the Danes. In the 790s strongholds were built by men loyal to King Alfred the Great, in order to keep the Danes to the east of the River Lea.
After the Norman Conquest, both Enfield and Edmonton were mentioned in the Domesday Book. Both have churches; Enfield has 400 inhabitants, Edmonton 300. Enfield is also described as having a “parc”. This parc (a heavily forested area for hunting) was key to Enfield’s existence in the Middle Ages as wealthy Londoners came to Enfield first to hunt, and then to build houses in the lush green wooded surroundings. In 1303, Edward I of England granted Enfield a royal charter to hold a weekly market, which has continued up to this day. Read more…
