Hanger Farm, Hanger Lane (St Ann’s Road), March 1891

It was just to the west of Blackboy Lane - around where Chestnuts Primary School is today.

By the 13th Century much of the Parish of Tottenham, including the St Ann’s Road area, was occupied by farmland following the deforestation of areas of the Middlesex Forest. Most of the area was covered by open farmland, owned by a few large estates. Between 1229 and 1264 the Hospital of St Lawrence at Clayhanger was recorded to have occupied a site on Hanger Lane.

By the end of the 18th century most of the woodland within the Parish of Tottenham had been cleared and replaced by pasture and arable farmland. Hanger’s Green had been laid out as a small open space linking Hanger Lane to Black Boy Lane. During the same period a cluster of houses were also developed in the area. Rose Cottage, was on the north side of Hanger Lane and was to become known as Hanger Lane Farm by 1894. St John’s Lodge was built on the southern side of Hanger’s Lane within the site of the current St Ann’s Hospital.

The introduction of the railways to Haringey had a considerable impact on the development of the surrounding area during the mid to late 19th century. A new GNR line enabled the rapid mass transportation of workers into Kings Cross Station and had a marked impact on the subsequent development of the Wood Green area. Hanger Lane was renamed St Ann’s Road and St Mary’s Priory was built on the south side opposite the junction with Avenue Road and a row of 13 cottages was constructed on the west side of Suffolk Road for workers employed in Lee’s Clay Workings. A large fever hospital (now St Ann’s General Hospital) was established on the open land immediately to the south of Hanger’s Lane in 1892.
