Priory Park is a 6.5-hectare public park in Hornsey in the London Borough of Haringey. It is located on the Priory Road and Middle Lane, approximately 0.5 km north of Crouch End Broadway. The park is protected as a Fields in Trust Queen Elizabeth II Field. It has been winner of multiple Green Flag Award since 2003, and has an active community group.The park contains a fountain made from Lamorna stone which was installed in 1909. This originally stood in St Paul's Cathedral churchyard.HistoryThe park was created in two sections. Two parcels of land at the eastern and southern ends were purchased in 1891 by the Borough of Hornsey at the instigation of Henry Reader Williams and opened in 1896 as the Middle Lane Pleasure Grounds. In 1926 the western section was added after the acquisition of a piece of land known as Lewcock's Field. During World War 1 this had been requisitioned by the council for allotments. After the war an initial plan for the council to develop the field for housing was dropped on grounds of cost, and an expanded park was renamed Priory Park.Put Priory Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our London road trip site.
