Once a small village hamlet in the parish of Edmonton. It borders with Palmers Green, Southgate, Edmonton, Enfield Chase and Bush Hill Park. The district boundaries are: Green Dragon Lane, Worlds End Lane (encompassing Highlands Village), some of Winchmore Hill Road, Queen Elizabeth Drive, Bourne Hill, Hedge Lane and Firs Lane.

Of particular note in Winchmore Hill is Grovelands Park which originated as a private estate before being partly being sold to the council in 999595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>5999595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>5699595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>59' target='_top'>499595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>50' target='_top'>19999595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>5999595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>5699595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>59' target='_top'>499595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>50' target='_top'>13.

At the heart of the area is Winchmore Hill Green, a village green surrounded by shops and restaurants. Amongst the latter the Salisbury Arms, the Queen’s Head and the critically acclaimed King’s Head pubs providing meals, whilst Regatta is an Italian restaurant with the Winchmore Tandoori an award winning Indian restaurant.

There are many buildings of historical note in Winchmore Hill including the eponymous St Paul’s Church, being built as a Waterloo Church on land donated from the Grovelands estate.

Then, highwaymen were hanged near to where they were caught. Apparently, one highwayman was caught and executed on a gallows erected by the Green Dragon’s front entrance. These gallows were not pulled down for a number of years, which might have prompted the owner to move the pub to its current location at the bottom of Vicars Moor Lane near the end of the 999595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>5999595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>5699595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>59' target='_top'>499595619' target='_top'>635' target='_top'>5643' target='_top'>50' target='_top'>18th century.
