Our Heritage

From the reign of Henry II the area was a forested hunting ground. By the 14th century the area became known as Enfield Chase. 

 

It is believed that Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth I) often hunted on the Chase after she was granted the estate of West Lodge Park by her brother Edward VI in 1547. 

 

After an act in 1777 the Enfield Chase estate no longer existed and became deforested. 

 

In 2020, 25 acres of the Botany Bay Farm is being reforested as part of an ambitious plan by the London Borough of Enfield in partnership with Thames21. 

 

In addition we have submitted further plans for planting over 5,000 new trees within the farm, further restoring the landscape, enhancing the biodiversity and creating more natural habitat for wildlife.
