Volunteers have been honoured for their work in compiling a local heritage list.

On Tuesday November 14 the Mayor of Enfield Cllr Christine Hamilton was at a ceremony to thank over 30 people who took part in a survey.

Working with Enfield Council, The Enfield Society, environment specialist Urban Vision CIC, Enfield Conservation Advisory Group, Enfield Local History and Historic England the volunteers compiled a list of 500 borough landmarks.

This list was then studied and cut to around 260 places of interest that includes buildings, archaeological sites, landmarks and landscapes.

Among those on the list are the rare, red post boxes which have a royal monogram of Edward VIII (who abdicated after less than a year as monarch); Enfield’s cast iron directional finger posts; Oakwood Park’s ice well; and, the Cockfosters 1968 water tower.

Cllr Alan Sitkin, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for economic regeneration and business, said: “Enfield is a borough rich in history and our cultural heritage is embedded in these wonderful landmarks.

“Every item on the list has a tale to tell about our exciting and strong communities and it is only right that we do what we can to conserve these local assets for the future.

“Enfield Council would like to thank every volunteer for their help in creating this list.

“Their time and enthusiasm has been invaluable.”

The list which has been updated for the first time since 1974 can be seen by visiting http://new.enfield.gov.uk/services/planning/heritage-conservation-and-countryside/listed-buildings/.
