Ambler Road, N4

Place name

Named after the developer Benjamin Ambler who lived in Blackstock Lane. The road was formally laid out sometime around 1875, and named by 1877 when it appears in the Directory. Though the rate books between 1840 and 1847 make reference to properties under the adjacent Seven Sisters Road and Blackstock Lane, so it is likely to have existed earlier. Ambler also gives his name to local primary school.
