The London Borough of Enfield is the most northerly London borough and forms part of Outer London.
Middlesex University has three campuses in Enfield (Ponders End, Cat Hill and Trent Park campus).
Enfield was once a small market town on the edge of the forest about a day’s travel north of London. But as Greater London has grown, Enfield has become a residential suburb with fast transport links into central London
The current borough was formed in 1965 from the former area of the Municipal Borough of Southgate, the Municipal Borough of Enfield and the Municipal Borough of Edmonton. The armorial bearings of these three boroughs were also merged.
