Willenhall Avenue, EN5

Place Name

In 1820 Thomas Wyatt bought Belle Vue, a substantial property, but soon afterwards pulled it down and erected a new mansion on its site, changing the name to Willenhall House, after Willenhall in Warwickshire, his birth-place. When Thomas died in 1837 he left the estate to his wife Elizabeth who sold it sometime around 1862, five years before her own death. The family tomb is in East Barnet Churchyard. The house was pulled down about 1890 and the estate cut up for building purposes.
