As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Tottenham Hale .
History of Tottenham Hale
Tottenham Hale is situated in north London, in the borough of Haringey. It is 8.5 miles from the centre of London. There is evidence of pre-Norman economic activity beside the River Lea. "The Hale" means "the nook;" and this was recorded around the late 13th century. However, the first mention of Tottenham Hale, did not come until 1754, during the Georgian period. At this time, Tottenham Hale was the largest district of the area, with many dwellings; and the Ferry Boat Inn was situated at its eastern side. After the construction of the Lee Navigation, a lock was built at Tottenham Hale in 1776.
In 1840, during the Victorian era, Tottenham station opened on the Northern and Eastern Railway. In 1968, the station was named Tottenham Hale. It is currently on the Victoria Line of the Underground, and also on National Rail. When the station was first opened, Tottenham Hale was a village, with over 600 inhabitants. The Ferry Boat Inn was enlarged, and opened a pleasure garden and fishery. It was a popular place to visit. In 1845, Tottenham Lock was resited to its present location. From the 1860s onwards, suburban development followed in the area. At the same time, the East London Waterworks Company's reservoirs submerged the meadows. As a major feat of Victorian and Edwardian engineering, from 1863 to 1904, ten reservoirs were created. These have provided millions of Londoners with their drinking water ever since.
During the early to mid 20th century, factories were built in the area, and much of Tottenham Hale was primarily industrial. One example was the Gestetner Factory on Broad Lane: this employed 6,000 staff, and specialised in stencil duplicating equipment.
From the late 1950s onwards, much of Tottenham Hale was redeveloped, with residential housing. In the late 1970s, the Ferry Lane estate, and a new primary school was opened. Disused factories were replaced by warehousing; and Ferry Island and Tottenham Hale retail parks were opened.
New building developments have taken place, and one of the most notable of these is Hale Village. This has over 1,100 residential properties, and 1,200 rooms for students. There are further new amenities and businesses, employing 400 people. The next major scheme will be Hale Wharf, where around 500 new homes will be built next to the waterside.
In 2020, Tottenham Hale's population was 19,147. This shows the area has come a long way since Victorian times. It is a thriving district of London; ideal for renters and first-time buyers, wanting to get on the property ladder.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Tottenham Hale
I went with my family to visit Walthamstow Wetlands. There are many reservoirs to see. On our pleasant walk, we were lucky to see pochards and swans. We went up Coppermill Tower, and enjoyed views of London, from the viewing platform. Afterwards we had a good lunch at the café.
