The Best Of Edmonton In Photos

This week, we're taking a trip through the camera lens to Edmonton, N9, and surrounding areas in the Borough of Enfield. From green fields and graveyards to high rise flats, it's a varied terrain in this neck of the woods, as these photos depict. Notable past residents have included poet John Keats (there's a plaque dedicated to him on Church Street) and sibling authors Charles and Mary Lamb.

Choo choo! This wooden train can be found at Angel Gardens at the end of Rays Road (which we featured in our London's Little Gardens series). In a short space of time, this area went from wasteland to a community recreation ground. Photo: Rachel Holdsworth

Edmonton incinerator (AKA London EcoPark) seen from the North Circular at night. The plant burns waste to provide energy for the National Grid, and is currently Britain's largest incinerator, burning waste from seven London boroughs. Photo: roadscum

Edmonton Green bus station, looking slightly bat-like at night. It was rebuilt in recent years, and in doing so, the pedestrian bridge which featured in the rollerskating episode of Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em was demolished. Photo: LFaure Photography
