Designed by Charles Holden as a part of the 1930s Piccadilly line extension, Oakwood station is now Grade II listed. It was not named ‘Oakwood’ however, until 1946. Merryhills and East Barnet were amongst the shortlisted titles, but when the station opened in 1933, it was named Enfield West, then later became Enfield West (Oakwood).
In 1066, as a result of the Norman conquest, William I handed over Enfield Chase (Oakwood park) to Norman Baron Geoffrey de Mandeville.
