A little bit of history
“A big WELCOME and enjoy”
Enfield is incredibly rich in history and can trace its roots back to Roman Times, where a Roman settlement was established near Ermine Street in Bush Hill Park. In the 14th Century it became an important business centre when Edward I granted the first market charter giving the right to hold a weekly market at Enfield and two fairs annually to Humphrey de Bohun, the Lord of the Manor of Enfield. In the 16th Century the borough became a favourite for royal hunting when Elsyng Palace became one of Henry VIII’s Royal Palaces. Elsyng Palace remained a favourite of the Tudors with Elizabeth I staying there between 1564 and 1572. Delivering clean water to London’s burgeoning population became Enfield’s focus in the 17th Century. In a major feat of engineering, a 40-mile canal was built between Ware in Hertfordshire through Enfield and into north London. This was called the New River and visitors can still walk the length of the river today.
Why move to Enfield? Located 10 miles north of central London, Enfield is one of the 32 London boroughs and is the most northerly of them all. It is particularly popular with young families thanks to its acres of green space, excellent schools and brilliant range of local amenities.
