Block Management Southgate
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Southgate .
History of Southgate
Southgate was originally a hamlet, first mentioned in 1370. The gate stood near what is now Southgate tube station, in north London. Perhaps surprisingly, the original layout established in the 14th century, no longer exists. It must have been a small settlement, because there was no medieval church or civil administration. Southgate village originally formed part of Edmonton parish and hundred.
Wealthy Londoners settled in Southgate in the 18th century, replacing woodland with mansions, set in landscaped parkland, surrounded by farms.
A fine group of Georgian houses for the well-to-do, developed around the Green. By the end of the 18th century, the village had occupied most of the High Street. Several landowners had relatively small holdings, each developing their own plots, to their own specification. A pleasant terrace close to the Green was built by Michael Searles, whose work is also admired in Blackheath and Walworth.
