Green Lanes

Green Lanes, London, (N16, N4, N8, N13 and N21) is a main road in North London and forms part of the A105 and is considered the longest street in the capital.

Green Lanes is an ancient thoroughfare which was used to drive cattle from Hertfordshire towards Smithfield Market in London. It runs from Newington Green in Islington north along the western edge of Stoke Newington, thereby forming the border between Hackney and Islington until it reaches Manor House at the eastern edge of Finsbury Park. It then runs through Harringay and ends at the junction of Turnpike Lane. Some sections of its route carry other names: the late Victorian Terraced mansion houses on the eastern side of the road through Harringay are called "Grand Parade", and through Wood Green Green Lanes has been renamed "High Road" but it becomes Green Lanes once again for another 2.15 miles through Palmers Green and Winchmore Hill in the London Borough of Enfield, until it reaches the junction with Ridge Avenue and Green Dragon Lane at Mason's Corner. (The northward continuation into Bush Hill at this point is now blocked - there is a bus-turning lane there.)

Amongst the sites on its route are Clissold Park, The Waterworks, Finsbury Park, the New River (which follows a similar course for some distance), the sites of Harringay Stadium, Arena and Harringay Green Lanes railway station, Grand Parade, the Salisbury Public House erected in 1897 with its crown to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, and Turnpike Lane Underground Station.

A diverse range communities are included in the areas through which it passes. Some sections are host to sizeable commercial or residential populations of Greeks, Turks, Cypriots, Kurds and Jamaicans.

Grand Parade, Harringay, London, N4 is a row of Terraced mansion houses and shops on the east side of Green Lanes, between Harringay Green Lanes station and the junction of St Anns Road.
