Oakwood 219 / 270

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.

Look at the sheer height of the original brickwork of the entrance hall. Look also for the original passimeter, the retail kiosk, and many other original heritage features. Enjoy.
