Bycullah Avenue, EN2

Place Name

Like nearby Bycullah Road it takes its name from the estate of Bycullah House, over which it was laid out in the later part of the 19thCentury. The house was named after a suburb of Bombay, by a retired Indian Army officer, Colonel John Reginald Riddell, who became a director of the York and Lancaster Railway company. The Bycullah Estate was developed from 1878. Bycullah Avenue was marked on an auctioneer’s plan of 1888 and may have been referred to eight years earlier as Avenue Road. Building on former Chase land near Windmill Hill was also encouraged by the opening of the railway station in Enfield in 1871.
