First Avenue is an unusual instance of the numbering as opposed to the naming of roads.


The area called ’The Avenues’ were built in different years, outside of the sequential order that might be expected.

Fourth Avenue and Fifth Avenue were built first in 1880 with Sixth Avenue begun in 1883. Seventh Avenue dates from 1884

First Avenue and Second Avenue date from the 1895465' target='_top'>90s but Third Avenue did not appear until 192' target='_top'>27.

In 1974 Enfield council compulsorily purchased properties north of Main Avenue and demolished Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Avenues to put up a housing estate.

First Avenue appears on the 1895463' target='_top'>96 Ordnance Survey map with houses on the east side only.
