About Crouch End
Crouch End is an area of North London, in the London Borough of Haringey and is included in the post code N8. Crouch End has a busy town centre with many shops and restaurants. A large number of open green spaces give the area a green aspect. To the immediate west, it is bounded by Highgate Woods, and the adjacent Queen’s Wood, as well as a large expanse of playing fields. To the North is Alexandra Park and to the south Finsbury Park. ‘The Parkland Walk’, a former railway line, connects these two parks. Other parks in the area include Stationer’s Park and Priory Park. Crouch End grew up as a hamlet on the old medieval route from London to the north. At this time it was governed as part of Hornsey which became a parish in around 1300. This heavily wooded area contained farms and villas, one of which was Crouch Hall, probably built in 1681 at the crossroads of what came to be known as Crouch End.
Crouch End remained rural until around 1880, probably because of the lack of adequate sewerage. Large parts remained in private ownership, inhibiting development.
But the railway was to change the area significantly. By 1887 there were seven nearby railway stations. Crouch End became a prosperous middle class suburb due to an influx of mainly clerical workers who could easily commute to the city. The large old houses were replaced by comfortable middle class housing and public parks were opened and number of new roads and avenues, such as Elder Avenue and Weston Park were laid out.
It expanded greatly in the late Victorian period and most of its present-day streets were built up in the late 19th century.
By the mid-1930s Crouch End was a solid, middle-class Middlesex borough with a thriving and popular shopping centre that included an Opera House in the middle of Topsfield Parade. Read more…
