A little bit of history
Our area began life as a tiny hamlet on the junction of Fox Lane and Green Lanes. Local records mention a Palmers Field in 1204, Palmers Grove in 1340 and Palmers Green highway in 1324. Even the coming of the railway in 1871 failed to cause much growth in the area until 1902 when local landowners finally succumbed, sold land to developers and the Palmers Green we know and love today began to take shape.
