Points of Interest: Enfield
Enfield Town (Enfield) is one of 35 major centres in Greater London. It has become a popular residential suburb thanks to its faster transport routes into the capital only 10 miles away.
Once a small market town, Enfield developed alongside the growth of London and as locals walk around the borough, the heritage is clear to see. The parish church dedicated to St. Andrew – a 13th century architectural gem decorated with stained glass and monuments – and Enfield Grammar School which is located in an old Tudor school building are just two of the landmark buildings.
Enfield has undergone major redevelopment work in the past decade, including a large extension to the existing Palace Gardens shopping centre. The Palace Exchange, Enfield’s newest shopping experience and home to over 20 stores, now sit on the site of the former Palace.
The town’s biggest claim to fame is that it had the first ever ATM in the world. The idea of a cash machine was that of Mr Shepherd-Barron and he pitched the idea to Barclays Bank over 40 years ago, achieving success. They then opened the first ATM in their branch in Enfield and the rest, as they say, was history.
Enfield does play another important role in history as it is home to one of the oldest pubs in the country: King & Tinker Pub. This particular building dates back to the 1500s but it is thought the site has been a pub for at least 1,000 years, giving it a unique charm and plenty of history that locals are exceptionally proud of.
