Cherry Tree Road, N2

Place Name

Named after the nearby ancient woodland Cherry Tree Wood. But the name could have been very different. Up until the turn of the 20thCentury Cherry Tree Wood was called Dirthouse Wood on account of the horse manure brought up here from all over central London to fertilise the fields. It was changed to a more pleasant name as the area became developed.
