Roads A – F

This is a bash at listing all the roads in Lower Edmonton including any that have gone and noting any changes I know about. This page provides an introduction and then lists road names beginning with the letters A through to F.
Please note that most pages on this site have had little attention since the end of 2005 so may be somewhat out of date. Even if some parts of the page have clearly been updated that does not mean all the page has.

There is probably a blindingly obvious way of getting a definitive list of roads in Lower Edmonton but unfortunately I haven't used it. Instead I started with the council's refuse collection schedule. That seemed pretty comprehensive but missed some roads out. In fact it seemed to have lost the Hyde House, Barbot, Hyde and Sunnyside Road estates completely. Had I instead used the street sweeping schedule I'd have been a lot better off though it is not a complete superset of the roads in the refuse schedule. I also found the Sure Start Edmonton site dating from 2001 which included several streets marked as 'new build' in its catchment area (though some of its N9 and N18 attributions were somewhat dubious) that gave me a number of the roads on the Plevna Road and Montagu Road developments. Looking up the postcode and then checking that on a map helped give a rough location. The Barbot Estate development included some road names and I may have missed some, or changes to existing ones.

Anyway the idea is that if a road is or was in Lower Edmonton it will be mentioned on this page even if I don't say much about it. If it isn't and you think it should be then let me know.

I am also including some of the names of terraces and things that used to be part of addresses but are no longer used e.g. 'The Crescent', or now no longer exist e.g. 'Frederick Terrace'. However this will be a bit hit and miss really and I may even add names that I see on terraces that were never actually part of addresses.

I must credit Graham Dalling for Southgate and Edmonton Street Names which came in handy for information about the older roads that I couldn't get from my maps. The 1896 map he refers to is the one I call 1894. He is referring to the published edition date, I use the survey date also used by the publisher of the reprint.

I used Multimap, Streetmap and a road atlas based on © 2000 O.S. data to look up roads I don't know and I think they probably do reflect the situation in the late 90s. I also have an older one first published in 1990 which I am slightly more dubious about.

Entries in emphasis are for roads that no longer exist, old names for still existing roads, or names that are no longer used in addresses. Road names in normal weight rather than strong emphasis are for roads whose location I haven't positively confirmed yet or can't locate at all.

It will take me a while to say something about every road, and even longer for that something to be particularly useful.

There are a lot of roads to handle so I'll split the content across a number of pages:

  A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M  N  O  P  Q  R  S  T  U  V  W  X  Y  Z

Acton Close Acton Close lies between the railway line and Balham Road on the site of the 1970s district heating station. Access is via Lacey Close. There is still housing being built there in 2002/3.
Acworth Close Acworth Close is shown on my street maps as being one of two cul-de-sacs off the southen end of Turin Road. I wonder if they are on the site of the old tram depot/bus garage at the end of Tramway Avenue. If so that makes them something like late 80s houses.
Ainsley Close Ainsley Close is off Church Street in the area shown as Jew's Corner on older maps (where the road dog legs heading towards Little Bury Street. Again this will be a late 80s development or thereabouts.
Albert Sleet Court See Colthurst Drive.
Aldbury Mews Albury Mews is a cul-de-sac running east off Church Street at the western end where it swings north past the library and clinic. My latest road atlas places it in N21 though older ones don't. I haven't checked this and I can't recall if this area is in the general 1930s style of most of the housing in this area or a later development.
Alexandra Road Alexandra Road is a tiny road linking King Edward's Road and Bridlington Road in the area between Jubilee Park and the Hertford Road. I can't recall if it has any housing or just provides rear access. It is shown laid out on the 1914 O.S.
All Saints Close All Saints Close runs off Victoria Road behind the pub. Some flats were built on the corner in 2002 but otherwise the road just seems to be an access road for a development of flats behind the church. I am not sure when it was built. Could be anywhere from the 1960s on really.
Alma House Alma House lies on the south side of Sebastopol Road and is one of the blocks built in the 1950s redevelopment of the area.
Alpha Cottages The first pair of houses on the east side of the Hertford Road to the north of the Bury Street junction has Alpha Cottages written on it in a fashion rather like a street name. I should imagine they date from c. 1870 as there are two terraces of similar houses next to them.
Anvil House Anvil House is a block of flats set back from the Hertford Road between Osman Road and Sebastopol Road and is one of the blocks built in the 1950s redevelopment of the area.
Ardra Road Ardra Road runs off Meridian Way in the area of the sewage works. It isn't on a 1990 road atlas I have though that might not mean much. On the other hand it could mean it is a 1990s construction. It is a service road for a couple of firms.
Arthur Road Arthur Road is one of three roads on the Hyde House Estate on the north side of Church Street roughly opposite the Haselbury Road junction. The impressive terraces on Church Street itself date from 1881 but the roads are still only partially developed on the 1894 map. First occupation was by 1893.
Aulay Lawrence Court See Menon Drive.

Badma Close Badma Close is on the c. 2002 developments on the east side of Montagu Road. It is the southern most of three closes running from Hudson Way to the railway line.
Bales Terrace Bales Terrace is on the east side of Dunholme Road between Chalfont Road and West Close. I haven't examined it too closely but it looks relatively modern. The area behind it is 1960s but it didn't look that old to my eyes.
Balfour Mews Balfour Mews runs south off Bridge Road (between Fore Street and the railway bridge leading to the Barbot Estate). In the days of the horse drawn trams this was apparently where the horses were stabled, hence the name.
Balfour Road Balfour Road used to run parallel to Barbot Street and the others on the Barbot Estate. Occupied by 1899, it was demolished in the redevelopment. I think it would have been about where the line of three tower blocks was built.
Balham Road Balham Road is on the north-west side of The Green. It really developed from side access to the old Cross Keys. On the 1894 map the road can be seen unnamed and undeveloped but properties had been occupied by 1899.
Banstead Gardens Banstead Gardens is one of five roads on an estate situated between the A10 and Haselbury and West Lea Schools and accessed from Westerham Avenue. I could imagine it being 1930s looking like Westerham Avenue but don't know for sure.
Barbot Close Barbot Close dates from the late 60s / early 70s and is at the south end of the Barbot Estate. It was largely an access road south of Lancelot House turning north to service some maisonettes. In the 90s it gained a southern branch when houses were built on waste ground next to the railway. In 2002/3 there was development on the old Lancelot House site and in early 2004 I noticed that the west to east part from Victoria Road is now named Tristram Drive.
Barbot Street Barbot Street was located on or close to the present location of Tristram Drive (previously called Barbot Close) at the south end of the Barbot Estate. Already existing by 1881, it was demolished in the 1960s.
Barrowfield Close Barrowfield Close lies to the north of Tottenham Park cemetery and the brook on the west of Montagu Road, and to the south of some older roads. It seems to be a late 50s or early 60s development of flats and I believe was previously the location of the greyhound track.
Barrowfield Lane Barrowfield Lane started in the very south-east corner of The Green and ran under New Road and then doglegged to the area of Barrowfield Nursery. A narrow lane already existing by 1801and named by 1841, it vanished of the map in the 1970s redevelopment.
Bath Road Bath Road runs parallel to Bounces Road just to the south of the middle section. It is shown on the 1894 map with just one row of ten houses so was presumably just being developed up. First occupied by 1893.
Beaconsfield Road Beaconsfield Road was occupied by 1881 when it ran across the ends of Plevna Road and Osman Road. This area was completely redeveloped in the 1950s and it now runs from Osman Road to Sebastopol Road.
Beale Street Beale Street can be seen on old maps linking the ends of Barbot Street and Chauncey Street so it probably dates from around 1880. The later Rosebery Road would have extended it. It was lost in the late 60s redevelopment and the northern branch of Barbot Close would seem to be about the right location for it.
Beamish Road Beamish Road lies between kenwood Road and Millbrook Road to the north of the old Croyland Road schools site. On the 1894 map the eastern section exists and is about fifty per cent developed but stops at Saddlers Mill Stream at the western end. It had first been occupied by 1881.
Beatrice Road Beatrice Road links Cuckoo Hall Lane to Nightingale Road. I am not familiar with it but I would speculate it is probably a between the wars development.
Beckenham Gardens See Banstead Gardens entry.
Bedevere Road Bedevere Road is part of the c. 2005 redevelopment of the Barbot Estate. It runs east from Victoria Road to link up with Galahad Road at the east end. As of June 2005 the Victoria Road junction has not been opened up and the road relies on a link to Salisbury Road for access. Salisbury Road is parallel to it, just a few yards away.
Bedford Road Bedford Road runs west off the Hertford Road and has the allotments to the north and Galliard School to the west. It has a 1930s look to it contrasting with the slightly older housing to the south.
Beech Close Beech Close is a cul-de-sac off Woodstock Crescent on the Galliard Estate. It has semi-detached 1930s housing.
Beechwood Mews This slightly upmarket looking apartment development is on the corner of Winchester Road and Church Street. It is 1980s or 1990s (I forget) and I can't remember what was on the site before.
Belmont Avenue Belmont Avenue is a crescent between Bury Street and Crescent Road. Most of the housing around here has an 1880-1910 look about it and I'd imagine this road is likely to be the same. Indeed Dalling states it was occupied by 1902.
Bexley Gardens See Banstead Gardens entry.
Blakesware Gardens Blakesware Gardens runs parallel to Salmon's Brook from Little Bury Street to Church Street opposite the clinic and library. Again it has that 1930s look about it.
Blenheim House Blenheim House lies on the corner of Sebastopol Road as it swings north and is one of the blocks built in the 1950s redevelopment of the area.
Bon Marche 266 - 276 Hertford Road is the terrace of six shops leading to the junction with Lowden Road. In the 1902 directory this terrace was called Bon Marche. It was not developed at the time of the 1894 OS Map so we can safely date it to the late 1890s or turn of the century.
Boone Court This is on the south side of Town Road between Granville Avenue and St Malo Avenue. I am not sure of the date of the development but it replaced the housing seen on Town Road on the 1894 map and it seems to have a courtyard layout with access via St Malo Avenue.
Bounces Lane Bounces Lane runs behind The Crescent at the west end of Bounces Road. It just looks like an alley in front of some garages at the north end. On the 1894 map there is an unnamed lane marked here. Bounces Lane is also the old name for Bounces Road.
Bounces Road Bounces Road runs between the Hertford Road and Montagu Road and it existed by 1801. Along with Town Road it was one of the main areas of development between the mapping of 1867 and 1894. The name changed from Bounces Lane in the late 19th Century. Bouncers Lane (note the extra "r") is marked on an older map but that seems to be in the location of Town Road so I am a bit dubious about it.
Boundary Road Boundary Road is a short road between Nightingale Road and Sandhurst Road a short way down from the Hertford Road junction. I can't add any usual information.
Brett Court This is between St Malo Avenue and Eastbournia Avenue. The same comments apply as for Boone Court.
Brettenham Road This has an N18 postcode but is effectively on the southern boundary of Lower Edmonton. It existed by 1801 when it was known as Board's Lane but was renamed by 1871. On the 1894 map it can be seen that it used to join Fore Street more or less opposite Park Road and indeed that was still the case on an early 1970s map so it seems it must have been realigned when the "new" housing estate was built there.
Briary Lane Crosses Sweet Briar Grove in the south-west of the Hyde Estate for form two cul-de-sacs.
Bridge Road
Bridge Street
This is now a cul-de-sac opposite Knight's Lane car park leading to the railway bridge. The bridge was presumably put there when the railway was constructed (it opened in 1872) so there had long been a footpath or lane there. In a 1902 directory the road is referred to as Bridge Street rather than Bridge Road and it linked up with Rosebery Road.
Bridlington Road Bridlington Road runs between the Hertford Road and Jubilee Park vaguely in the Tramway Avenue area. I think it has the older style of housing like King Edward's Road though it is a little younger. It is laid out but not developed on the 1914 O.S. map.
Brierley Avenue This is on the maps as a cul-de-sac off of Nightingale Road towards the south end. That is all I know.
The Broadway The name The Broadway was introduced in the early 1900s for the northernmost part of Fore Street from the Bridge Road and New Road junctions up to Railway Approach and the level crossing (presumably it dates from Salmons Brook being covered over, thus making the road wider). As far as I am aware it still refers to the same stretch of road and is still marked as such on many modern maps, though there are no road signs to reinforce this. After the redevelopment of the late 1960s the name The Broadway was used for the row of shops underneath the multi-storey car park, and sometimes for the entirety of the bus station (which was basically just a restricted access road).  The car park and bus station were demolished i 2005 and it remains to be seen if The Broadway name will continue in use.
Brompton House Brompton House is the block of maisonettes just north of the old Police Station on the Hertford Road and is one of the blocks built in the 1950s redevelopment of the area.
Brook Crescent
Brookfield Road
Brookside Road
These lie between Felixstowe Road and the old low level railway line. Their name is a reference to an old course of Salmon's Brook that used to run in this area and maybe still does underground. In fact I believe it may be the original course. Brookfield Road was laid out on the 1914 O.S. map and the housing I glimpsed from Plevna Road looked between the wars to me.
Brooke Road Please see the entry for Park Lane.
Brook House Brook House lies on the south side of Plevna Road and is one of the blocks built in the 1950s redevelopment of the area. It was also a house on south side of Bury Street opposite the Galliard Road junction where the Newbury Centre is and that gave its name to the Brook House Estate development (Junction Road, Kenwood Road etc).
Bruce Terrace Bruce Terrace is listed as an address on Lower Fore Street in 1890 and numbered as part of Fore Street in 1902. It seems to refer to the part of The Broadway either side of the Baptist Chapel.
Bunting Close Bunting Close is one of three cul-de-sacs on the north side of Goodwin Road with another three on the south end of Charlton Road. This area was still industrial / light industrial on a 1990 published street map so might be 1990s.
Burn Side This is marked on the online maps and in my older atlas as being off of Montagu Road in the area north of Salmon's Brook. However it is not in my latest atlas and it is slap bang where the latest stages of housing development are so I will assume it has been developed over. The Sure Start list quotes numbers 1 to 18 on it which might suggest it was residential though it would have been on the southern edge of an industrial area if it was so perhaps it isn't so likely.
Bury Hall Villas Bury Hall Villas is the address of the row of houses on the east side of the A10 between Bury Street and Harrow Drive. They look 1930s sort of period.
Bury Street Bury Street is a long standing east to west road running from the Hertford Road to the Church Street and Ridge Avenue junction (it included Bury Street West until sometime in the last century). It was also the name of an outlying hamlet centred on what is now the A10 junction (with another bit around the Little Bury Street junction). The area east of the railway line was mostly built up in the 1890–1910 sort of period replacing a few larger houses. West of the railway line it is mostly 1930s redevelopment over some much older sites.
Bury Street West This is the part of old Bury Street west of the A10 Great Cambridge Road junction. Quite when in the 20th Century the "West" was added I don't know but it isn't used in the 1937 Kelly's Directory .
Bush Hill Parade I didn't know this had the N9 postcode but even if it doesn' t it is worth noting as the parade on the north of the Church Street and Bury Street West junction.
Buxton Close This is on the c. 2002 'North Nine' development south of the junction of Pickett's Lock Lane and Montagu Road and is the eastern of two closes running north off Hennesey Road.
Byron Terrace This is a terrace of (ex?)-council stock housing, and perhaps some private housing, on the west side of the Hertford Road south of St Alphege's church. It has its own numbering sequence but is listed in the post code database as "Byron Terrace, Hertford Road".

  A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M  N  O  P  Q  R  S  T  U  V  W  X  Y  Z

Cambourne Avenue A crescent between Wellstead Avenue and Charlton Road.
Cambridge Terrace Cambridge Terrace is the parade of shops at the eastern end of Bury Street West of the site of the old Bury House. They'd date to the 1930s I should think (certainly not before).
Camelot House Camelot House was the middle of the line of three tower blocks erected on the Barbot Estate in the early 1970s between Salisbury Road and Chauncey Close. Demolition was underway in October 2002 and continued into 2003.
Causeyware Road Causeyware Road runs east off the Hertford Road just up from Tramway Avenue and was laid out by 1902.
Cedars Court Cedars Court is a cul-de-sac off the north side of Church Street more or less opposite Haselbury Road and on the south-east corner of the playing field there. If I remember correctly it is a development of flats with a 1960s or 1970s look about it.
Cedars Road Cedars Road is now just a stub of a road off the south of Church Street. However until the massive redevelopment of the 1960s and 70s it would have swung west to join on to Victoria Road and it was known as Hyde Lane until 1901.
Central Avenue Central Avenue runs into the middle of the Hyde Estate from Haselbury Road.
Centre Way Centre Way is one of three roads on the old industrial estate between Goodwin Road and Pickett's Lock Lane.
Chad Crescent This is part of the c. 2002 developments on the east side of Montagu Road. It is a crescent opposite Town Road and this suggests it would cover the site of the former Burn Side. As of February 2003 it was the southern extent of the completed housing.
Chaffinch Close Chaffinch Close is one of three cul-de-sacs on the south end of Charlton Road with another three on the north side of Goodwin Road. This area was still industrial / light industrial on a 1993 map so must be late 1990s.
Chalfont Green Chalfont Green runs parallel to Haselbury Road in the Hyde Estate from Chalfont Road to Northern Avenue. Roads ending in "Green" on The Hyde Estate seem to be very small roads with only room for one way traffic though I think they may open out into a small green space mid way along.
Chalfont Road Chalfont runs from Victoria Road (just south of the shops) almost to the far side of the Hyde Estate. It was laid out by 1908 but developed post-war.
Charles Cottages Charles Cottages are shown on the 1894 map next to Myrtle Cottages. Please see the entry for Myrtle Cottages for more information.
Charlton Road Charlton Road starts from Nightingale Road opposite St Marys Road and then swings up to run near the railway line almost to the boundary. I don't know the history but there is certainly a lot of 1980s development on the railway side.
Chamberlain Road Chamberlain Road used to run parallel to Barbot Street and the others on the Barbot Estate. First occupied by 1902, it was demolished in the redevelopment in the early 1970s. I think it would have been about where the line of three tower blocks was built. The name was reused for one of the roads off Salisbury Road serving the maisonettes built in the 1970s.
Chauncey Close Chauncey Close was created in the 1970s redevelopment of the Barbot Estate and ran between two groups of tower blocks. The road seems to have survived the c. 2004 redevelopments pretty much intact.
Chauncey Street Chauncey Street, spelt Chauncy Street on the 1894 O.S. map, was located on or close to the present location of Chauncey Close on Barbot Estate. It was demolished in the 1960s.
Chelsfield Avenue Chelsfield Avenue runs off Mottingham Road in the area behind Salisbury and Cuckoo Hall schools which is not an area I am at all familiar with.
Chester Road Chester Road runs from Bounces Road to Grosvenor Road a little west of St Peter's church. There is nothing to be seen there on the 1894 map but it was occupied by 1902.
Chichester Road Chichester Road lies between Winchester Road and the railway and had been occupied by 1902.
Chiltern House Chiltern House lies between Beaconsfield Road and the north end of Sebastopol Road and is one of the blocks built in the 1950s redevelopment of the area.
Chiswick Road Chiswick Road runs from Balham Road to Croyland Road following the same curve as the Hertford Road here.
Chris Andrew Way Chris Andrew Way was known as Hamilton Road until 2009. It was renamed as a memorial to a local councillor and the renaming also usefully removed some historical confusion with similarly named roads elsewhere in the Borough. It runs between Galliard Road and St Edmunds Road opposite the recreation ground end of Jubilee Park. It does not have any housing on it. On Galliard Road it marks the boundary between the two storey houses to the south and the 1930s bungalows to the north. It was renamed to Chris Andrew Way in 2009.
Church Lane Church Lane runs north from Church Street opposite All Saint's Church. The name Church Lane seems to have come along in the early 19th Century for a lane already noted in 1801.
Church Street Church Street (the B154) runs from Edmonton Green to Ridge Avenue. Originally it was the main turnpike road from Edmonton to Enfield. The name Church Street existed by the time of the 1867 O.S. but even on the 1894 one this was only up to the church (and likewise on the 1901 Census I believe). The remainder was called Hyde Side and that also included Bush Hill Road. I don't know when the whole road was renamed.
Clarke Mews Clarke Mews is a tiny cul-de-sac on the south-west corner of the c. 2001 build Plevna Road development serving just the one small block of flats.
Cleveland Road Cleveland Road is a sort link road between the Hertford Road and Doncaster Road just up from Houndsfield Road.
Clifford Road This is a cul-de-sac off Nightingale Road at the northern end as it turns out of site of the Hertford Road.
Coles Avenue Please see the entry for West Street.
Colthurst Drive Colthurst Drive is the road on the south of the green space on the c. 2001 Plevna Road development. There are four blocks of flats running south of it towards the brook and these are called Albert Sleet Court, Florence White Court, George Taylor Court and Joyce Lattimore Court.
Colville Road This runs from Sutherland Road linking Denny Road and Henderson Road which means it must be the back gardens you walk past on the footpath alongside the south-east of Jubille Park. It was occupied by 1905.
Commercial Terrace Commercial Terrace appears in the 1890 Kelly's Directory. Comparison with a 1902 directory suggests this is the parade on the west side of Fore Street between The Steps and Shrubbery Road (numbers 325 to 335).
The Concourse The Concourse (as it appears in the Royal Mail databases - the original signage didn't have the definite article) was part of the Edmonton Green Shopping Centre development of the late 1960s / early 1970s. It ran from the bus station, under New Road, to Market Square. It was all but demolished in 2005 apart from six shop units on the south side.  It remains to be seen if the name survives the redevelopment.
Congo Drive This is part of the c. 2002 developments on the east side of Montagu Road and runs easterly (-ish) off the south side of Chad Crescent.  As of February 2003 it was the southern extent of the completed housing.
Coniston Gardens Consiton Gardens is a cul-de-sac (or two) off Cumberland Road which is on the Goodwin Road Estate. This whole area was redeveloped in the 1960s(-ish) which might suggest a date for it though of course it could be newer.
Coran Close A cul-de-sac off Shirley Grove in the Charlton Road area.
Corn Court I noticed that a cul-de-sac at the Jubilee Park end of Bridlington Road is marked as Corn Court on the some maps. I'd imagine this would be a relatively modern development, probably 1980s.
Cornwallis Avenue
Cornwallis Grove
Cornwallis Road
Cornwallis Road runs from Bounces Road to Monmouth Road and the two others run parallel to Bath Road between it and Exeter Road. Cornwallis Road is shown fully developed but truncated on the 1894 map. The others were occupied by 1904.
The Crescent The Crescent was, and indeed still is, the early 19th Century terrace on the Hertford Road north of Monmouth Road. It uses Herftord Road numbering now though.
Crescent Cottages Please see the entry for Oxford Close.
Crescent Road Crescent Road runs from Bury Street (opposite Junction Road) up to Sutherland Road. It is laid and named out on the 1894 map so presumably would have been developed over the next few years.
Cross Keys Close Not listed in my atlases or on the online mapping sites but as I expected it is the service road for the block of flats on the corner of The Green and Balham Road. That would date it to the 1980s.
Croyland Road On the 1894 map Croyland Road is shown from Bury Street until just where it turns north and is partially developed. It had been occupied by 1881. The pillar box on the other section running up to Bury Street is an Edward VII one so that suggests it was probably developed in the 1900s.
Cuckoo Hall Lane Cuckoo Hall Lane runs from Hertford Road across Nightingale Road and up to Charlton Road. It goes back quite a way being already named by 1801 and associated with the house and farm of the same name.
Cumberland Road Cumberland Road on the Goodwin Road Estate is shown laid out and partially developed on the 1894 map. This area was redeveloped in the 1960s or thereabouts so the existing road of that name might not be the original one, but it is certainly similarly aligned.
Cyprus Road Cyprus Road was a cul-de-sac off the south end of Latymer Road and was laid out and named on the 1894 OS. In the 1990s Streamside Close was tacked on the end of it.

  A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M  N  O  P  Q  R  S  T  U  V  W  X  Y  Z

Darley Road Darley Road is a cul-de-sac off Harrow Drive on the site of the old Bury Hall which survived until the 1920s. It would be a 1930s development as far as I know.
Dartford Avenue Dartford Avenue is a crescent crossing Mottingham Road in the area north-east of Nightingale Road. I've never been around there as far as I know.
Dawson Terrace Dawson Terrace is marked on the maps between St Alphege Road and Cuckoo Hall Lane near the Hertford Road end though not as a clear road. I am not sure exactly what it is. There is certainly some relatively modern development (1980s?) there on the site of an old milk depot but this might not be associated with it.
Deansway Deansway runs between the A10 Great Cambridge Road and Haselbury Road about half way between Church Street and Westerham Avenue. The housing style follows that of the Hyde Estate with an interesting feature a number of small crescents of houses every so often along the road. A contributor to the message board suggests that this road was originally named Western Avenue and was renamed after the war.
Denny Road Denny Road runs of the Hertford Road midway between Bury Street and Houndsfield Road. In 1894 the road can be seen named and laid out for the length of the back gardens either side. It was occupied by 1899.
Densworth Grove Densworth Grove lies between Town Road and Monmouth Road. I don't know is this has the general early C20 look of the other roads or is much later. Moathouse Farm is in this area on the 1894 O.S. Map.
Devonshire Road Devonshire Road runs from St Mary's Road into the redeveloped Goodwin Road Estate. So as both ends were demolished and redeveloped somewhere around the 1960s I wouldn't be surprised if it has the same name.
Dickenson Close Dickenson Close appears to be part of the housing development built on the site of the old Croyland Road schools. It is not shown on my 1990 map but I would have thought it was a 1980s development.
Dodsley Place Dodsley Place provides access to Tottenham Park Cemetery on the west side of Montagu Road and the post code database gives it the full address "Dodsley Place, 289 Montagu Road". There is also a block of flats here.
Doncaster Road Doncaster Road runs between Houndsfield Road and Bridlington Road between the Hertford Road and Houndsfield School. It was laid out by 1914.
Dorman Place This road is in the development on the north-west of The Green along from Balham Road. This is likely to make it late 70s or 80s though bits could be later than the others.
Dover Road Dover Road runs from Exeter Road to Montagu Road. I should imagine this is a between the wars development as it doesn't seem to have made the 1914 maps.
Dunholme Lane Dunholme Lane is a short road running off the south end of Dunholme Road to join Sweet Briar Green.
Dunholme Road Dunholme Road is on The Hyde Estate running uo from Park Lane to meet the end of Granham Gardens. It was laid out by 1914 but not developed.
Dunnock Close See the entry for Bunting Close.
Durbin House Durbin House is a block of flats on the corner of Osman Road and the Hertford Road in a 1950s redevelopment.
Durham Road Durham Road runs from the south end of Chichester Road and across Winchester Road to be a cul-de-sac on the other side. It was occupied by 1903.

Eastbournia Avenue Eastbournia Avenue runs south from Town Road towards the site of the much later Barrowfield Close. The 1894 map shows it partially developed and indeed it had been occupied by 1893.
Eastbrook Avenue Eastbrook Avenue is a cul-de-sac off a cul-de-sac off a cul-de-sac off Turin Road just north of Salisbury School. Something about that screams late C20 but I may be wrong.
Edward Close Edward Close is a cul-de-sac from Bury Street to Edmonton County School grounds. It would be 1930s.
Eldon Road This is partially developed on the 1894 map and only about half way to Cumberland Road. The school north of here didn't open until 1899.
Elizabeth Ride Elizabeth Ride is a cul-de-sac off the Hertford Road just south of Tramway Avenue.
Ellacombe Villas The terrace on the east side of the Hertford Road between Alpha Cottages (opposite Bury Street) and Grosvenor Road has Ellacombe <something> on a plaque and a 1902 directory confirms it as Ellacombe Villas.. As the next terrace along (Jasmine Villas) is dated 1870 and built in the same style I think we can get a date for their construction.
Ellen Court This is a cul-de-sac off Densworth Grove.
Elmcroft Avenue Elmcroft Avenue is on the Galliard Estate running on the north side of Galliard Road from Mayfield Close and joining it opposite Rossdale Drive. It dates to the 1930s.
Elstree Gardens Elstree Gardens runs between Bounces Road and Rosemary Avenue.
Emsworth Close Emsworth Close is a cul-de-sac off of St Mary's Road. It was formerly called St Mary's Gardens and occupied by 1899 though I don't know if this is the identical road as the area was redeveloped in the 1960s.
Evesden Close Evesden Close runs off Colthurst Drive between the first two blocks. I don't think the service roads between the other blocks have names so perhaps there is some extra housing at the brook end. This is c. 2001 build.
Exeter Road Exeter Road runs from Bounces Road to Town Road. On the 1894 map it was just a short stub with ten houses on it.

Falman Close Falman Close is the name for the small road at the Bury Street end of Croyland Road that runs round into the space between the houses and flats and the railway line. It is a 1990s development as far as I recall. The new buildings are located on Bury Street and Croyland Road and the road itself goes through the flats and just provides parking spaces.
Felixstowe Road The 1894 map shows Felixstowe Road laid out and named just as it is today but undeveloped apart from a few houses at the southern end. There is an additional wider section marked out that extends to the end of Knight's Lane which would take it roughly where the swimming pool is now. Dalling reports this end was called Northcliff Road originally. I really don't know this area but I am sure at least some of the first housing built there will have survived the redevelopment of the area.
Field House Field House is a 1950s built block south of Sebastopol Road and lies between Brompton House and Alma House.
Findon Road Findon Road runs from Bury Street to Sutherland Road and on the 1894 map is developed on the east side.
Fleece Drive Fleece Drive is a cul-de-sac off Solomon Avenue which runs off Park Road. A street atlas I have improbably gives it the N18 post code. It would be 1990s build.
Florence White Court See Colthurst Drive.
Fore Street The A1010 through Edmonton south of The Green has been known as Fore Street since at least 1801 though around that time it was also called High Road. The name Lower Fore Street for the Lower Edmonton end was on maps in the second half of C19 and was still on them in the 1970s at least and indeed it is still used on the only street name sign I have spotted. Apparently Lower Fore Street is also called Duck Lane in the 1847 Census and on an older map it looks more like it is spelt Buck's Lane. On the 1894 map Fore Street is developed on both sides but little remains now. On the east side the Methodist Church is marked but I believe the existing building dates from 1911 and I can't see that anything else remains. On the west side I would say the Golden Fleece, the five houses either side of the former M.K. Electric offices, The Steps, the parade of shops to the north of it and the terrace of six house up to Shrubbery Road are the only survivors.
Forest Road Forest Road is not on the 1894 map but was occupied by 1905.
Fraser Road Fraser Road runs from Plevna Road alongside the line of the old low level railway and then turns at the end to join Brookfield Road. It was occupied by 1904 though walking past the Plevna Road end I thought the housing looked more like between wars housing.
Frederick Terrace This is used as an address in the 1890 Kelly's Directory but isn't in a 1902 directory. Based on number 10 Frederick Terrace in 1890 and 370 Fore Street in 1902 both being a grocer and Post Office under the name Lanham, and there still being a similar establishment there in 1937, I would suggest this was on the east side of Fore Street north of Sebastopol Road and looking at the 1894 map I would say it ran south to north with the Albion pub being number 1. This would make it numbers 352 to 376. This area was totally redeveloped in the 1950s and Anvil House and Gilpin House are now on the site (or towards the rear of if). A 1900 directory has now supported my deduction.
