Worlds End Lane, Enfield
|Ceremonial county||Greater London|
|Sovereign state||United Kingdom|
"World's End" is a whimsical name for a dwelling or piece of land considered to be in a remote spot or situated on the boundary of a parish. This World's End lay on the boundary between the parishes of Enfield and Edmonton when it was established as a farm in 1777. Between 1879 and 1882, residential buildings were constructed along Slade's Hill, at the northern border of World's End. The site of the farm was purchased by Enfield's local board in 1889 to build an isolation hospital. Further development took place in the 1930s, when residential roads were built off Slade's Hill and the still-standing local pub was first opened.
