Bruce Grove

Bruce Grove is a ward in Tottenham, enclosed by Lordship Recreation Ground, Lordship Lane, Philip Lane, and the High Road.

The neighbourhood dates back to Roman times with Ermine Street now the High Road.

The name originates with nearby Bruce Castle, which was named after Robert the Bruce. When Robert became King of Scotland, Edward I seized his English Estates, including the area then known as Bruce Manor.

Most of the houses were built in the late Victorian/ Edwardian Era following the building of the Great Eastern Railway Enfield Branch. Bruce Grove - the road - has some Georgian architecture and an almshouse - Edmanson’s Close - built in 1869.

The Bruce Grove area of the Tottenham High Road has received a £1m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore the historic Victorian and Edwardian buildings to their original grandeur under the Bruce Grove Townscape Heritage Initiative project.

The area is served by Bruce Grove railway station. This was originally a station on the Stoke Newington & Edmonton Railway which opened on 22 July 1872.

A new roof, built in the style of the original, was recently constructed giving the illusion of original authenticity to the station. Haringey Council funded this work and the station is considered a site of historic interest in the locality.
