Named after the local district, Higham Hill which means a village on a hill, from the Old English words hēah and hām. It was first recorded in the Domesday survey of AD1086 as Hecham. By AD1333 it had become Heigham and in AD1501 Heighamhill. The Station element of the name is unusual because the road does not lead directly from to Highams Park train station, but it is likely to reveal the early ambitions of the developers for it to have done so.
