Priory Parks History

Priory Park is named after a 19th century mansion and estate which once covered this area.

Farmland was purchased by Hornsey Local Board in 1891 largely due to local politician Henry Reader Williams who recognized that people needed open space.

Priory Park was laid out in two phases. The east part of the park was completed in 1899 and in 1926 land to the west was purchased and more was added to the park.
