"The mansion house built in Trent Park in the early 20th century was used during the Second World War as a place to house captured German military personnel. Here, the British Army could gain knowledge of what the German's were plotting by listening to their conversations secretly."

Trent Park is ideal for all the family - visit the cafe or try out the activities at the Go Ape centre.

About Cockfosters

Cockfosters is a suburb of North London, lying partly in the London Borough of Enfield and partly in the London Borough of Barnet. The counties of Hertfordshire and Middlesex respectively (in which Cockfosters was located pre-1965) are still used in postal addresses. The name, Cockfosters, has been recorded as far back as 1524, and is thought to be either the name of a family, or that of a house which stood on Enfield Chase. One suggestion is that it was "the residence of the cock forester (or chief forester)". The Piccadilly line of the London Underground reached Cockfosters in 1933.
