Green Lanes is well-known amongst residents of Highbury and Stoke Newington, Wood Green and Haringey, and the southernmost parts of the London Borough of Enfield as one of London's longest single thoroughfares. Beginning at its northernmost extremity at Bush Hill Park, and meandering South to Newington Green, its width and length is informed by its ancient origins as a drover's road. A drover's road being a route exploited by herdsmen and the agricultural community to move livestock from one place to another. Here, the livestock would have been accompanied to Smithfield Market in central London. The animals have long gone, but the route remains a popular through road for commuters needing reliable access to and from the City centre. From Newington Green, access to Highbury, Dalston, Old Street, and reputable financial districts is straightforward.
Green Lanes takes in a number of well-used Tube stations, including Wood Green, Turnpike Lane, and Manor House, making Piccadilly Line access very easy indeed! From the increasingly fashionable Manor House, King’s Cross is only three stops. The growth in the local professional demographic is partly informed by the quality of new private high-rise accommodation within a few minutes' walk from the station. The one, two, and three bedroom raised apartments include gym access and balconies with stunning views over the capital.
Arguably the prettiest stretch of Green Lanes is its length between Manor House and Newington Green, which overlooks Clissold Park, one of London's most outstanding and well-known green expanses. The mid-to-late-Victorian terraces and villas are tastefully complimented by newer and purpose-built apartments, providing high-quality accommodation to a broad demographic. Those who enjoy Stoke Newington's trendy night spots and vintage emporiums are well-catered-to, as are those who seek the quieter cafes, book shops, exotic delicatessens, and furnishers of beautiful Highbury.
