  1. About Hadley Wood

    Hadley Wood is a suburb of North London, close to the border with Hertfordshire. It is located in the London Borough of Enfield, about 11 miles (17.7 km) north north-west of Charing Cross and is situated close to Barnet. Nearby Trent Country Park is a 400-acre (1.6 km2) oasis of meadows, woodlands and lakes. It was once a hunting ground for Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and James I. With dedicated walking, cycling and horseriding routes there is no shortage of ways to explore the park. Of note is Camlet Moat which is one of the borough's five scheduled ancient monuments. Additionally kids will love the Wildlife Rescue Centre, which is home to deer, foxes, rabbits and birds. In Hadley Wood Village there is a small parade of shops and Hadley Wood railway station.
