About Stamford Hill
This modern residential suburb straddling the ancient border between Edmonton and Enfield conceals the remains of the earliest known settlement in the district and is located in postal district N15 and E16. Extensive Roman remains have come to light especially between 1974 and 1976 when excavations took place between Lincoln Road and Main Avenue on land cleared for development. The settlement at Stamford Hill appears to have been abandoned at the end of the Roman occupation and the area saw relatively little habitation until it began to develop in the late 19th century. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Stamford Hill area.
Development of the area began around 1800, and many prosperous dwellings were built around Stamford Hill over the next century. The London Road became a busy commercial centre to serve the needs of the expanding population. Around 1880, not only were railways serving the area, but this was the point where the tram systems coming north from the city met the Hackney tram system. As such, it became a busy interchange, with a depot opening in 1873. Electrification commenced in 1902, and by 1924 a service was commenced between Stamford Hill and Camden Town, along Amhurst Park.
From the 1880s, a new influx of Jews arrived escaping poverty of the Stepney in the East End and jointed the well established community already settled. This resulted in the transfer of the New Synagogue to Stamford Hill to serve this growing population in 1915. In 1926, the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations was established in Stamford Hill, and this became a magnet for other strictly observant sects, many fleeing both Stalinist and Nazi persecution in the years before and after World War II. Also, many Jewish families came to the area from other areas of London, refugees in their own way from bombing and post-war clearances for new housing. One of the early Hasidic leaders in Stanford Hill was the Shotzer Rebbe. Another notable Jewish resident from 1955 until his death in 2000, was the spiritual head of the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations, Rabbi Chanoch Dov Padwa. Read more…
