Coronation ArchPrint Page Print this page

Arch commemorates the coronation of King George VI in 1937.

In 1936, Enfield Council carried out works to improve the reserve and in 1937 extended this work to include the building of the commemorative brick arch and the renaming of the road to Coronation Parade. These projects were devised as work relief schemes, creating jobs for local residents affected by the 1930s Great Depression.
