We lived here from 1991 until 2008. Southgate and Oakwood stations within walking distance - Oakwood the nearest. A lovely, green and spacious area with Trent Country Park a few minutes walk (opposite Oakwood Station). Good transport links to London/Enfield/Hertfordshire. Unfortunately the opening of Asda Supermarket led to a decline of the area with many of the shops closing. When we left in 2008, many of the shops were open and it was a thriving high street. Iconic Art Deco Southgate station is a sight to see. Even Oakwood station has some Art Deco features - the old newsagent kiosk. Southagate is full of history too.
There was a large dairy when we moved there, but overtime this closed and was replaced with houses (where isn?t?). Enfield Town and Gentleman?s Row are worth a visit. First cash machine at the Barclays Bank in Enfield Town

I am trying to find any information out about 3 Erskine Road. NW3. I have just come across an old identity card which was my Grandmothers, dated 1946 , this being where she then lived. If anyone can give me any information about this area then, or old photographs, that would be really good.

Lived with my parents at number 18 from 1963 to 1981, briefly moved back for a while but moved on in 1987. Remember riding my scooter in the 60?s and in my soap box that my grandad made, he lived at number 27 from after WW1 till 1976. Great days playing football against the wall on the corner of Burghley Rd and Lyttleton Rd with my mates from the adjoining road. Now live in North Norfolk but often think back to Hornsey and Stationers Company School.

Coleraine Works was the informal name given to a small industrial building – just to the right of the photo shown – on the corner of Poynton Road and Wycombe Road.
This last housed a printer and has been empty for several years as the council refuse to let it pass into non-commercial use.

Have your say on our new transport strategy
Join us on 4 July as we discuss Camden’s key transport challenges and how to address them
The Mayor of London has published his new transport strategy which aims to transform London’s streets, improve public transport and create opportunities for new homes and jobs. We have our own strategy that aligns with the Mayor’s vision and addresses key local challenges. We created our first borough strategy in 2011. Since then Camden, along with the rest of London, has changed significantly. We’re therefore updating our own Camden Transport Strategy (CTS) as part of the Local Implementation Plan (LIP), which all boroughs are statutorily required to produce and submit to Transport for London to demonstrate how they will help deliver the Mayor’s strategy locally alongside th
