Broadwater's Farm in Tottenham around the turn of the 20th century.

Broadwater's Farm, Tottenham (1892)
Until the opening of the nearby Bruce Grove railway station in 1872, the area was still extremely rural, despite its proximity to London and the growing suburb of Tottenham. Aside from a small group of buildings clustered around neighbouring Bruce Castle, the only buildings in the area were the farmhouse and outbuildings of Broadwater's Farm, then still a working farm.

Following the construction of the railways to Tottenham and Wood Green, development in the surrounding area took place rapidly. However, due to waterlogging and flooding caused by the River Moselle, Broadwater's Farm was considered unsuitable for development and remained as farmland. By 1920, Broadwater's Farm was the last remaining agricultural land on Lordship Lane, surrounded by housing on all sides.

In 1932 Tottenham Urban District Council purchased Broadwater's Farm. The western half was drained and converted for recreational use as Lordship Recreation Ground, while the eastern half was kept vacant for prospective development and used as allotments. Heavy concrete dikes were built to reduce flooding of the Moselle in Lordship Recreation Ground, whilst on the eastern half of the farm the river was covered, to run in culvert as far as Tottenham Cemetery.
