  2. 2. 2 The Great Northern Railway, created by Act of Parliament in 1844, set about constructing the line from York to London. The section through Hadley Wood was the last to be delineated. Tunnels or deep cuttings had to be dug through the ridge of London Clay between the old and the new courses of the River Thames and their engineers could not agree on the alignment. The Duchy was amenable but the tenant at Greenwood, Thomas Paris, son of Archibald, not only demanded an enormous amount of compensation for the purchase of seven acres of his lease and loss of amenity, he also insisted on laying a branch line to haul clay from the tunnels up to his brickyard and to sell bricks to build the bridges and line the tunnels. Construction was completed in three years and the line opened in August 1850. Soon after Charles Jack an enterprising farmer and developer bought Beech Hill Park, moved in to the Mansion and took over the leases on the Monkey Mead lots. He farmed successfully until the late 1870s when the price of grain was depressed by imports from the American prairies. He hatched a scheme to persuade the Duchy to let him build houses on the Monkey Mead lots and persuade the Great Northern Railway to build a station. Negotiations took some time as the railway wasn’t willing to build a station until there were houses and Jack couldn’t build houses until there was a station. Jack resolved the problem by agreeing to pay £4000 towards the cost of a bridge over the railway at the station and £2155 for a siding beside it to bring in The Making of Hadley Wood Part 2 his construction materials. The GNR paid contractors £3780 to build the station and an additional £1120 for the bridge to be extended to accommodate two additional tracks which did not materialise for another 75 years. Jack also had to agree to pay 5% interest on the cost of the station and £750 per year towards the operating costs until 50 houses had been built. The station was opened on 1st May 1885 and named Hadley Wood rather than Beech Hill Park and that was the name given to the new residential settlement. The two additional tracks were eventually constructed on the west side of the existing lines in 1959 to alleviate the bottleneck and required three new tunnels to be bored. The Victorian station with its ornamental dags was replaced by a featureless modern one which infuriated some residents. Steam trains were replaced by diesels in 1963 and by electric trains running to Moorgate

These trains, now nearly 40 years old, are due to be replaced in a year or two. In 1880 the only houses in the area were West Lodge, Beech Hill Park Mansion, Greenwood, Mount House (now St Martha’s Convent school), Trent Park and their tied cottages. Four houses were built on the north side of Beech Hill before 1885: St Ronan’s, Parkfield, Camlet House and The Lothians. By 1890 fifteen houses had been built on the south side of Crescent East and eight houses at the top of Crescent West. By1896 sixteen more had been built in Crescent West with two shops and a large house beside the railway station that had been designed as a hotel. By 1901 two more houses had been built in Crescent East and ten in Lancaster Avenue giving a total of around sixty, fulfilling Jack’s commitment. Coombehurst on the Cockfosters Road was built in 1906 and by 1914 four more houses appeared in Camlet Way, four in Crescent West, and seven in Lancaster, Longhill in Waggon Road, twelve terrace houses in Cockfosters Road plus Walmar, Theydon House and Beechwood in Beech Hill. St Paul’s Church was built in 1911 to a design by Albert Kingwell who made no charge for his services. After the First World War plots of land were sold along Beech Hill and Cockfoster Road to finance the construction of the golf club. More houses were built in Camlet Way, Crescent West, Crescent East, Waggon Road, around Greenwood, along the north side of Beech Hill and from the eastern end of Lancaster Avenue. West Lodge opened as a hotel in 1921. New roads were set out in Parkgate, Beech Hill Avenue, Newman’s Way and Wood Ride. A rare Edward VIII letterbox, which must have been erected before his abdication in December 1936, still stands in Waggon Road. In all about 200 houses were built between the wars to give a total of around 300 in 1939. But a dozen houses in the Crescent were unoccupied because they were found to be difficult to maintain and expensive to heat; the gardens were long, narrow and sloping and some had no garages. During the war these were eagerly taken over as offices by organisations keen to move out of London. Charles Jack’s enthusiasm for development steadily declined and he was declared to be of unsound mind in 1892 and died in 1896. Although his son took over, the estate passed into the jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery. More houses were built but the targets set by the Duchy were never achieved and the lease was terminated in 1941. Around 1900 Albert Kingwell became the managing agent for the Jack Estate and set up his office and residence in the large house at No.1 Crescent West, originally intended to be a hotel. He effectively controlled development in Hadley Wood for the next half century, obstructing any improvements he regarded as undesirable, invoking the authority of the Estate trustees or the Duchy, and rigorously enforcing the terms of leases and the restrictive covenants imposed by the Duchy. Anticipating the termination of the lease, Kingwell wrote to Enfield Council in 1939 proposing that they should purchase the undeveloped land on either side of the railway and over the tunnels from the Duchy, including the tennis courts, for use as an open space, recreation area or public park. The area totalled 23½ acres including an acre by the North Tunnel which Kingwell had bought for himself and was prepared to donate. The Council agreedA Hadley Wood Household before the First World War

Not much use was made of the open space for the next 20 years when the Council decided to construct a sports field in Bartrams Lane and turn four of the six tennis courts, which had been run by the Tennis Club since it was founded in the 1890s, into public courts. This galvanised the local residents to action and 400 people turned up at a meeting which resulted in the formation of the Hadley Wood Association. The Association Centre was built on the site of the Tennis Club pavilion at a cost of around £20,000 financed by grants and contributions from local residents. It was opened in June 1969 by Leslie Ross Collins, the first President of the Association. House building accelerated rapidly after the end of the Second World War in sharp contrast to the sluggish rate of development around the railway station from 1885 to 1939. Development started again in Parkgate and Beech Hill Avenue, Greenbrook Avenue in 1948, Duchy Road and Kingwell Road in 1954, Broadgates Avenue from 1957 and Covert Way in 1958. By 1960 Courtleigh Avenue, Claremont Road and Helena Close were well advanced and six houses on the west side of Crescent West. There were now over 800 houses in Hadley Wood. St Ronan’s was demolished and replaced by houses in St Ronan’s Close and Camlet Way and more houses were being built in Lancaster Avenue. In 1963 No.1 Crescent West was demolished to build a block of flats and eight shops in the discordant style of that decade, entirely out of place in the Crescent, and three houses were built in Bartrams Lane. The primary school was opened in 1965 and has recently been rated ‘outstanding’ amongst many other accolades. In 1970 the old shops were demolished and replaced by a second block of flats, two more shops and another house in Bartrams Lane. Greenwood, an old house built on the site of a cottage in 1833, was demolished in 1967 to make way for Musgrave Close. Thereafter most development involved demolishing large houses and building even larger ones or several smaller ones, and infilling in back gardens that were now larger than most people wanted. The old core of Victorian and Edwardian houses around the station became a Conservation Area in 1989. More recently gated cul- de-sacs have appeared such as Walmar Close, Paggitts Grove and Orchard Close, accessible by invitation. Hadley Wood had been transformed into a much sought after location with few opportunities for extensive expansion and premium prices that reflect that.

The Hadley Wood and Wingate Football Club makes good use of the Bartrams Lane field for matches and training sessions but the cricket club is no more and the children’s sports day needs organisers to get it going again. There are fireworks in November that bring in crowds from all around and a tug-of-war between East and West on the neutral territory of the railway bridge on New Year’s Day. There are various other sporting events and periodic dog shows. Despite the stubborn clay there are still some enthusiastic gardeners but many employ contractors to do their routine work. Dogs drag their owners around the leafy roads, the open space, the Hadley Woods, Trent Park and footpaths through the Green Belt, introducing them to other dog owners at every opportunity. The Great North Cycle Way starts at Hadley Wood Station and heads up the railway path to Waggon Road and on to Baldock with plans to extend it to Grimsby. The two pubs are long gone: the Bald Face Stag at the bottom of Beech Hill and the Sultan half way up Camlet Way. The Golf Club has the only bar with regular opening times for members but the Association Centre opens its bar for the Tennis and Bridge Clubs and on special occasions. There are no industries or offices here, just a few businesses and many self- employed professionals operating from home. Most of the working population commute to London or elsewhere. Wildlife flourishes: tits, woodpeckers and Canada geese, muntjac deer, foxes, many squirrels and a few surviving hedgehogs. The unique character of Hadley Wood has been moulded by the unrewarding clay soil of Enfield Chase, the Green Belt that protects its borders and the golf course and open space that only exist because the Jack Estate had failed to achieve its development objectives in the first half centuryaftertherailwaystationwasopened. It is usually a peaceful and uneventful place but on 5 December 1883 the police were tipped off that a bare-knuckle prize fight was being organised in the Hadley Woods after dark. The fighters, referee and several spectators were apprehended, charged with committing a breach of the peace and fined £5 each. Flooding stopped the trains in 1936, something that the bombs dropped during the Second World War failed to do as demonstrated by the crater on top of the North Tunnel. One Sunday

Francesca Caine morning in December 2005 an explosion at the Buncefield oil storage depot ten miles away sent a black cloud over the Bartrams Lane field, not that that deterred the footballers. Steam trains still pass through from time to time, smoke billowing and whistles blaring, reminding us of the origins of the community built around the railway. The Hadley Wood Association needs the support of all residents to protect and improve the amenities in this exceptional locality. The Rail Users Group has begun discussions with the new train operator to provide step-free access to the station and an application to set up a Neighbourhood Forum to enable the community to influence planning decisions, made possible by recent legislation, has just been approved by Enfield Council.

At a relatively fraught Council Committee meeting the areas we applied for were altered to leave out farm land on Waggon Road and Cockfosters Road.

Now the hard work starts.  We need Police support for Hadley Wood In the light of several recent burglaries in Hadley Wood here is a reminder of some key numbers. For emergencies dial 999 as usual. For non emergency Police matters dial 101. Our local Safe Neighbourhood team is lead by Sergeant A. Molloy and is based in Southgate. They can be contacted on 02087212688 (Steve Douglas) or you can email the team at cockfosters.snt@met.police.uk It should be remembered that our Safe Neighbourhood team does not provide an emergency service but  they are available during normal working hours. They should be informed of any concerns you have about local criminal activity.  A new Police recommendation is the use of Smart Water.  Quite often the Police recover stolen goods but have no means of identifying ownership. Marking valuables using Smart Water enables ownership to be established and often the thieves apprehended. For details of this useful technique to protect your valuables go to: SmartWater Technology Ltd. 27 Queen Anne’s Gate London SW1H 9BU Tel: +44 (0)800 521 669 Fax: +44 (0)870 242 4561 Email: enquiry@smartwater.com Web: www.smartwater.com Neighbourhood Forum. Planning progress and Public Workshop – 26th November 8pm St Pauls Church hall – all welcome. RSVP hadleywoodplan@gmail.com to discuss what we want our plan to do, what we should cover, what we want the area to be like in the future.  To help with this we will be holding an open meeting on 26th November. Please do come along if you want input to the plans aims and content. It is likely we will want to discuss house extensions, new build and front garden treatment. But we might also like to do some work on improving the pavement area outside the shops, and, after the flooding this week, how to manage surface water in our flood risk areas. We need to know your opinions about all these as well as other issues you think we should consider. If you can’t make the meeting please email your thoughts to hadleywoodplan@gmail.com    On the issue of flooding, the attached photo shows what Parkgate Avenue looked like at the end of August.  Water got into at least 2 homes, maybe more?  Esther Kurland Graham Barnett. Hadley Postman and Marathon Man Graham completed yet another London marathon this summer. It was his 27th. Fourteen of these were London marathons, the rest in other parts of the country. His best time was 3 hours 24 minutes. This year’s run took 4 hours 39. Not bad statistics? Well here is another one. I asked him how much he has raised for charity over all the years he has been running. ‘Not sure’ he replied. But he raised over £3000 for Chickenshed at this year’s run so that gives you some idea. He asked me if, through these columns, he could sincerely thank all those generous residents of Hadley Wood who supported this years fund raising. Rod Armstrong

Frainy Ardeshir (photo by John Leatherdale) Change of Management at the HWA September 1st sees the departure of Lisa from her role as manager of the Hadley Wood Association after more than12 years in the post. Unaccountably she has decided that it is time to retire from managing the finances, organizing meetings, dealing with the Council, arranging repairs, making sure the grounds are being looked after, keeping the Tennis Club, Pre-school, Dance and Bridge Clubs happy, supervising the Hall lettings, putting on social events and dealing with all the other myriad jobs associated with running a Village Hall. All on a low budget. She has coped with all this highly efficiently and conscientiously and her charm, tolerance and ability will be very much missed. The only good news is that we now have a new manager, Jaye, who took over on September 1st. Jaye has had a great deal of experience in administration working most recently in a prestigious post at UCL and has a strong background in management, finance, and especially IT. With two small boys currently attending the Pre school, the shorter commute from her home in Barnet to Hadley Wood rather than Euston, will give her more time with the family. We wish her a warm welcome and look forward to working together. The HWA Committee Ann Phillips retires as Chairman of the Hadley RNLI group The Hadley Ladies Guild was set up by Jean MacQueen in the 70’s with support of the RNLI as its main charitable beneficiary. Gillian Clarke took over as Chairman in 1984 and she was followed by Ann Phillips in 2001. After nearly 15 years in this post Ann has finally retired. During her period of office Ann and her group raised approximately £6000 a year for the RNLI, an incredible achievement for a small group of local ladies, their generosity and a testament to her leadership and organizational abilities. In recognition of her leadership Ann received the RNLI Gold Badge but typically she insists that this was for the whole team and not just for her. The next coffee morning with its usual stalls will be on the 28th October at the Hadley Memorial Hall from 10-30 to 12.00 noon. It will be Ann’s last meeting as Chairman. She and her team hope a new Chairman will soon come forward and continue Hadley’s support for the RNLI.

The Hadley Wood newsletter used to be most informative regarding issues surrounding security and carried a column written by our local bobby PC Baldock (long retired). We now have various roads covered by the patrol car (but not all) and we only get information about burglaries on the grapevine. I think this would be so much better if covered by the HWN. My husband John told me that there is a reward for a recent burglary in Orchard Close (next to us). Notices were put on lampposts and trees and it has also come to our notice that there have been some aggravated burglaries (most worrying of all!). Please would you consider having a column about Dear Editor As August comes to a close Hadley and Cockfosters residents have rising concerns over Enfield Council’s policy towards allowing very large commercial events in Trent Park. Recent festivals have flooded the neighbourhood with thousands of weekend visitors, and their cars have added to congestion on the narrow roads in our suburb. From correspondence to the Council and Friends of Trent Park it is clear that this change of use for Trent Park is unwelcome and intimidating to many. Questions have been voiced over what gain there is for our area, and our Park, but to date Enfield Council has nothing to announce.  Although the Park has not been closed during the setting up and knock down phases of these events, the level of activity generated over several days has resulted in far fewer residents using the Park. Cafe takings are down and visitors to the animal rescue centre have dropped. It is clear that the level of activity has deterred residents and raised resentment in that the very nature of these events has nothing to offer residents. The Friends of Trent Country Park are calling on the Council to rationalise permitted activities in the park, return Trent Park to its original character as a refuge for residents one to one fitness Email: jamie@one-to-one-fitness.co.uk Tel: 02084471661 / Mob: 07798776248 12 Crescent West, Hadley Wood, Herts, EN4 0EJ Beware of cheap imitations www.one-to-one-fitness.co.uk one to one fitness Email: jamie@one-to-one-fitness.co.uk Tel: 02084471661 / Mob: 07798776248 12 Crescent West, Hadley Wood, Herts, EN4 0EJ Beware of cheap imitations www.one-to-one-fitness.co.uk one to one fitness Email: jamie@one-to-one-fitness.co.uk Tel: 02084471661 / Mob: 07798776248 12 Crescent West, Hadley Wood, Herts, EN4 0EJ Beware of cheap imitations www.one-to-one-fitness.co.uk one to one fitness Email: jamie@one-to-one-fitness.co.uk Tel: 02084471661 / Mob: 07798776248 12 Crescent West, Hadley Wood, Herts, EN4 0EJ Beware of cheap imitations www.one-to-one-fitness.co.uk For your car.

I also think that it would be a good idea to do a mail-out (via the road reps if they still exist) regarding the on-line edition. If this is not possible then perhaps a notice at the tennis club, church, playgroup, or the shops might draw attention to the website. Kind regards. Elana Overs Thanks Elana. We have included a short update on useful police phone numbers in this issue and will arrange to talk to the Police and the Private Security team about liaison and the possibility of a regular report. The website is not doing too badly.
